Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

not drinking enough water

drinking too much caffeine, coffee, soda and not enough water can cause your urine to be more concentrated which can cause irritation and burning when you urinate

your burning doesn't sound like it is being caused by an STD

But why the tip of the penis is red? And it’s been like that for almost a month now.

it is normal for the tip of the penis and urethral meatus to be a bit red

it is a sensitive area

how much water do you drink daily?

work on drinking more water and less caffeine.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Not much? Is there something I can applied to make go away? Did You go over my pictures all of them including the std check?

I looked at the photo

the penis and head are normal

yes, I reviewed your lab results.

the skin looks normal

do you have bad anxiety symptoms?

you need to drink more water.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I don’t even know if I have anxiety.

I didn’t get what you meant to say on last message.

you don't have to worry about sexually transmitted diseases causing your burning during urination

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Then what do you think it is? And what can I use to make go away and how long should I used it for? And if doesn’t go away what is the next step after that?

it is due to you not drinking enough water

you should drink more water to dilute your urine more.
