My penis has been irritated for about 6 weeks now. Mainly on the lower side of the tip, and the at the base. Its not red, no sores or anything like that. But when soft, normally you don't think about it, but now I always feel it rubbing on underwear etc. My Dr. thought it was an infection, so gave me 10 days of antibiotics, but I'm on day 9 and it's still the same. He also suggested wearing an athetic supporter, which helps some, but isn't really a good long term fix. Urinating and erections are normal.

However, sometimes when it is soft, it is firmer that normal, and also an inch or two shorter, like it is retracting. If it is soft, but a little firmer than normal, and I try to do anything physical such as play sports, it hurts when I run, etc. When I urinate, it goes out to normal size, but then slowly goes back in. The amount of irritation, firmness, etc vary throughout the day, but it tends to get worse as the day goes on.

Any ideas?
