Hurts to Urinate

I have been suffering for two years with painful urinations. It started with something that felt like a knife was cutting me inside the penis, burning sensation to pee.

Cipro was given, tests taken, no STD's, just a bladder infection.

This occurred on and off for about three times. I was sent to an Urologist. He tested the prostate, ran more tests, all clear. He sent me to get the bladder checked out with an ultra sound. Again all clear.

I seemed to learn to deal with it.. holding back a bit, and never letting a full stream go, and the pain slowly started going away... it was at a point where I couldn’t feel any discomfort, however if i just went to the bathroom with a full stream without holding back, it would again, feel like there was almost a "cut" midpoint into the head of the penis, and the size of a nail.

A month ago I noticed the skin on the head of the penis was "pealing". Once more I went to a doctor, and they gave me Cipro. Cipro seemed to make it not as bad, but it was not gone. I went back, this time they did full blood tests and Urine Tests. While I waited for the results, the doctor gave me Sulfatrim. The tests came back a few days later, and apparently I had Chlamydia. Upset at first since I haven’t slept with someone in two years other than my wife, I was happy of sorts that I finally had figured out what was wrong! They gave me Cefixime (1 tablet, 1 dose) and Azithromycin (4 tablets, single dose).

It didn’t seem to help...which I couldn’t understand. I went back to the doctor, they took more urine samples, to see if I still had Chlamydia. They gave me Metronidazole (8 at once) and Erthromycin (2 tablets 4 times a day, for 7 days). This did seem to help a bit.. but i still have to hold it “in”... as soon as I let loose, I feel the burn that feels like a cut in the head of my penis. My penis head is still peeling. I have used cream the doctor gave me for the peeling.

Someone please help, what is going on! I’m starting to lose faith in doctors.

:confused: :(
