My urethra seems to be swollen and itches sometimes. I do have two types of Keratosis on my legs, back, arms, face, and stomach that also itches. I am wondering if it has gone into my Urethra. Is that possible?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern.

We can't say what you might have, only your doctor can, but some things that can cause inflammation and itching in that area can be:
Urethritis, which is an inflammation of the urethra that can cause pain and irritation. This is not the same as UTI (urinary tract infection).
Candida infection can cause itching and swelling in the vaginal and vulvar area and can affect the urethral opening. I don't know about the keratosis.
