Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it's urethritis. And with a single partner, most likely to be bacterial in origin.Chances of STD are less.

Plenty of liquids and lot of cranberry juice is good in overcoming the symptoms. Avoidance of coffee, alcohol, spicy food and smoking is another measure.

Try OTC AZO pills.

Take OTC Motrin and Claritin at night for 3 days.

If does not relieved by these measures, you may have to consult your doctor and urinalysis can be done and if required recommend an antibiotic course.

Is there any rash,redness on outside of penis head?

Thanks.Waiting for your response.

Expert:  Dr.Anil replied 1 year ago.

Well as you describe,it can be Balanitis.

It can be caused due to friction,poor hygiene,tight fitted clothes and moisture from excessive sweating,harsh soap use.

You can OTC 0.5 % hydrocortisone cream mixed with bacitracin ointment on affected area.

Also try other self care measures as we have discussed earlier.

If your symptoms'll persist then see your doctor for a clinical examination for further evaluation and management.

Hope this helps.
