Smegma a few days after sex?

    3 years ago I got a blowjob from a guy, and within a few days my dick started getting itchy and sore and producing smegma. I applied some betamethasone cream (that I normally use for mild eczema), not sure if that did the trick, but the problem went away within 2 days (a week after it started).

    I didn't have that issue again until a few days ago when I had both oral sex and protected anal sex with another guy. This time we showered right after, but within a few days I started getting the itchiness and smegma, but much milder. What is this??

    Do you clean under your foreskin daily ?

    Outside of these 2 incidents, I don't ever have smegma or soreness, even if I go several days without showering...

    It doesn't sound like NGU, which has symptoms similar to gonorrhea.

    ^^Camping, project deadlines, final exams, NHL playoffs, etc lol...

    update: it got worse... now it's as bad as it was the first time. My dick got super chaffed somehow and it hurts to roll back the foreskin. I just hope I don't wake up with a morning boner tomorrow =(

    Ok, it's probably balanoposthitis, though some of the pics on google look a lot scarier...

    The answer to all "I did [action x] have [symptom y], what should I do?"

    If you see a doctor they can rule out that it's something infectious; e.g., herpes, venereal warts, etc. which I think would be a good thing to do.

    So it looks like the worst is over (no longer hurts like hell to roll back foreskin, less smegma, still some itchiness). If it's like last time, I'll be back to normal by next week. Gonna get checked up in the new year.

    It just sucks how of the 5-6 guys I've ever gotten oral from, 2 of them gave me this balanoposthisis shit... these odds are terrible!

    Go to the health department and get it checked out ... call and find out what are available times for STD check ups

    Any Canadians care to comment about STD checkups? I've never done this b4...

    Btw, the smegma/soreness/chaffing/itch had gone away 4-5 days ago, so it's pretty much back to normal. However, a red patch on the head of my dick seemed to remain, with a corresponding smaller bump on my foreskin where it would overlap with the other patch when not retracted. Online sources say it's probably trauma. Is it because the guy I had sex with had too tight a rectum? Cuz it certainly felt tighter than usual.

    Anything is possible with unprotected sex. However, as previous people mentioned the best advice anyone can give you is from a real doctor. The sooner the better to ensure that:
    A. You do not have anything, and if you have a curable STI, the sooner it can be resolved.
    B. If you do have sex with the same individual, and it happens again, then you can see where the issue comes from.

    I have no experience with the Canadian Health Care System so I cannot comment.

    I've only ever had protected sex, and I've never bottomed. Is it even possible to get STDs? I've been having a hard time scheduling an early checkup with my doctor, soonest is in 2 weeks!

    It is very possible, generally after sex you need to take an immediate shower to clean any "residue". I went with a friend who was getting tested for herpes, and the doctor said the best thing you can do to prevent STD's (outside of being protected) is cleaning afterwords and not letting anything sit too long.

    Many clinics (even walk-ins) can do STD testing, just double check before going.
    I do STI screening as part of my annual checkup. My experience has been simple. I don't have any symptoms, they only get some blood samples and urine samples, and you go back to check results in a week or two. If you are free of disease, the doctor may not even call you.

    They can be very social places. Might even meet your next trick/date at one.
