    Possible Urethritis?

    For a little over a week now I have been experiencing some discomfort that I initially thought may be a UTI or something similar. The main symptom is a mild burning sensation but urination is not painful. Went to a Med Express and my urine sample showed no sign of infection and neither did the urine culture they sent for. They asked if it may possible that it's an STD but I am 101% sure that's not the case. They put me on antibiotics anyway and I am now on day 5 of 7. The burning/discomfort is still there but now seems to be moving down the urethra and the tip of my penis is very sensitive. It's very uncomfortable feeling the tip rub against my underwear. I plan on seeing a urologist if the problems persist after i finish the antibiotics but was wondering...Does this sound like urethritis maybe? Something else?

    Also, I should add two things to consider: (1) I had been using a new body wash that I quit using 2 days ago (if that was causing inflammation of the urethra, how long before it clears up? Immediately after stopping use, or longer?), and (2) I recently had a mild case of jock itch possibly from wearing new non-cotton underwear which I have stopped wearing a few days ago (can either of those things result in an inflamed urethra?).

    Go to a urologist. And you might want to start using a penis health creme like Man1 Man Oil to ensure that your penis is getting the right amount of vitamins and proteins... this is key to a healthy and hygienic penis. Google it and check it out. Hope this helps.
