I have BPH and am on alfuzosin and dutasteride, which seem to be working. Because I work from home I can readily monitor how much I urinate. Lately, I've noticed a significant drop in the average amount urinated per trip and as I write this I am having bladder discomfort. My urine strips seem to be suggesting a possible UTI.
I had a nasty UTI about 5 months ago and since then have tried to keep my penis and surrounding area clean. I generally use isopropyl alcohol for all areas except the penis head. The alcohol irritates my urethra. My uro suggested only using soap and water.
This question is directed mostly at the men here who self cath on a regular basis. What do you suggest that I use to clean the penis head on a daily basis that will not irritate the urethra or cause any problems. I believe some have posted about an iodine compound, but I don't know which one it is. Thanks for any suggestions.
