Pain in the penis while urination. Took arithmycin. Pain persisting

, it hurts when i urinate at the very tip of my penis . its a sharp pain as i begin to urinate. i also notice that the tip of the penis ( urethral opening) seems kind of sticky (ie it is like there is something keeping it together even when i gently squeeze the opening). i have also noticed that around the opening, there is about a 1-1 1/2 cm red area that is sensitive to touch. I ve had a full panel std screening all Negative. I had a course of Doxy and arithmicin as a precaution. Pain only during urination .

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have infection of the urethra especially external urinary meatus.

The cause of the infection may be either bacterial infection or due to vigorous sex or friction against the cloths.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics after consulting your family physician.

You can apply topical local anaesthetic gel to relieve pain.

Observe proper personal hygiene by cleaning the genitals with warm water.
