Probably been about 4 days, I also noticed the discolouration only in the last 48 hours and have no idea if it has been there longer as I haven't noticed. It doesn't hurt to urinate at all, it is generally a little sore...

Your symptoms are suggestive of prostatitis. This is a non STD prostate infection due to pyogenic organisms which causes referred pain to penis. To confirm the diagnosis, following are helpful;

1) A digital rectal exam by doctor would elicit tenderness on prostate.

2) A urine culture

3) Semen culture

4) Culture of prostate fluid after prostate massage expressed from penis.

The culture tests not only confirms the infection and causative organisms but also tells about the most efficacious antibiotic to treat it.

Meanwhile apply 0.5% hydrocortisone skin cream on the foreskin twice a day. The cream is available without prescription.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
