Swollen and itchy penis, possible yeast infection?
Patient : I just had sex for the first time last Friday. and I had an itching feeling about an hour afterwards. at first I was scratching at it, thinking it was a normal itch but after a couple of hours I thought I should stop. the next morning it was intensely itchy in the pubic area and on the right of my shaft was a swollen red area. there were also red dots on the head of my penis that basically went away after I put some Monostat on it(at my dad's suggestion). however the swollen area is still there, and the itchiness I've been numbing with ice. I'm planning to see my doctor soon, but it might take awhile to schedule an appointment. so do you have any idea what this is, and what I should do about it? (at least until I see my doctor)
