    Itchy spot on penis
    Pkp4life posted:
    I have been trying to figure out what it could be, and have had zero luck. I have tested negative for herpes, hepatitis, gono, chlamydia, syphilis, etc. but there is this one spot on the shaft of my penis that just itches. There is no visible mark, sore or rash so it's extremely difficult to show a physician "hey see this spot, I know you can't see anything, but it itches..."

    The feeling is similar to being bit by a small ant or mosquito, minus any raised bump or different color. If I scratch it hard, I feel as though I can feel a small "ball", just like an ant bite would leave a small distinctive section with edges. It does not hurt, and has been persistent over the course of a month. At night my scrotum also begins to itch a little which makes me wonder if it could be a yeast infection. I take daily showers, but have not tried any yeast treatments. I just didn't think only one small spot would be affected with a yeast infection, so I am reaching out to you all for thoughts, ideas, suggestions.
