Brief Answer: Urine test before starting an antibiotic. Detailed Answer: Hi. I would like to know your marital status, use of condom or spermicidal jelly, masturbation, sexual activity just to get an idea. The commonest cause of this problem can be just a non-specific urethritis ( meaning no specific cause can be found), passing of the small stone or concentrated urine in recent times. There is no discharge or frequent urination, is a good sign. The appearance of the dark spots may not be related to this problem. First of all I would advise such a patient to undergo tests of urine- routine, microscopy and culture sensitivity before starting any antibiotic suitable for urinary tract. Also would advise to drink plenty of water orally to make urine sufficiently diluted. If a course of 7 days does not help- I would recommend to undergo urethro-cystoscopy and Sonography of abdomen to see the condition of the whole urinary system. A consultation with Urologist and / Dermatologist will confirm the nature of the black spots you are developing on the skin.
