What are the treatments for Urethritis?

Published at : 04-07-2019 View : 13622

  Urethritis is an inflammation of the urethra, and it is a common infection brought by bacteria. It can also the result an injury of the urinary catheter or exposure to an irritating chemical such as antiseptic or spermicides.

Symptoms of Urethritis

  In some men, symptoms may not be apparent if the urethritis developed as a result of chlamydia or trichomoniasis infection.

  Men with urethritis may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

   Blood in urine or semen

   Painful ejaculation

   Penile discharge

   Burning sensation while urinating

   Itching, tenderness, or swelling in the penis

   Enlarged lymph nodes in the groin area

  The urethritis becomes inflamed during infection, making urinating more difficult. Discomfort in the penis is mostly limited to the tip, where the urethra ends.



Causes of Urethritis

  Some sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as gonorrhea and chlamydia cause the majority of cases of infectious urethritis. The virus can also cause herpes and other infections transmitted during sexual activity.

  The other causes include:

   Chemical irritation caused by lotions, soaps, and colognes can cause temporary pain in the urethra. Also, spermicide in condoms and contraceptive jelly, cream, or foam can irritate.

   Mechanical manipulation of the penis or minor trauma can lead to urethritis. Medical procedures, rubbing on rough clothing, as well as vigorous sexual activity or masturbation can cause temporary irritation of the urethra.

   Sometimes ejaculation can also cause a temporary feeling similar to urethritis. This typically goes away in a brief period without any specific treatment.

   Chronic urethritis is when the condition lasts for weeks or months or goes away and comes back. It may be caused by bacteria, or it can also be caused by a narrowing of the tube (urethra) itself.
