I need to know some points regarding your query.

How long are you having this?

Any discharge or redness??

Do you have any other symptom or previous illness?

Thank you.

No other symptons at all. I am married and my wife is pregnant but we have not been having sex.I am very faithful also so it couldnt possibly be an std. I noticed about a week ago. It happened for a day or so and then went away. It started happening again today.

Thank you for the information,

The slight burning sensation in tip of the penis can be due to an irritation, or inflammation.

This can be an inflammation or infection of the urethra called urethritis.

Irritation can come from any small stone lodged in the urethra.

Without STD, infection can be possible.

In case of infection antibiotic will be necessary.

Take plenty of water which clear up mild infection or small stone.

Urine test , swab test, ultrasound can be required.

You should consult doctor for examination and investigations to find out the correct diagnosis and start of treatment if it is necessary.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

I have a son thats 3 years old and he says that he was feeling the itching when he goes pee also and it wasnt bothering me until he said something and thats why im trying to find out what it could be. Would it be normal for us both to have that a the same time? he told me and my wife it feels like ants are on him?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 6 years ago.
Itching can be due to a skin problem like allergy, fungal infection.

But it is unusual that both of you will be affected at the same time.

Ok One more thing my wife wants to know if it could be the detergent that she uses or something like that?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 6 years ago.
Detergent, soap can cause allergy or irritation, it can be possible.
