Thank you for your query and Welcome to HCM.
In men, Dysuria (pain or burning during or just after urination ) may be a presenting complaint of urethritis, prostatitis, epididymitis
, or urinary tract
infections (UTI). Urethritis is more common in young sexually active male, whereas UTI occur in old patient with prostate enlargement or catheterization. Any obstruction in the urinary tract like stone or tumour; structural deformity can make the UTI recurrent. Presence of systemic complains like fever and chills etc help to differentiate the diagnosis. Urethral swab specimen and various specific testing, Urinalysis, Urine culture and sensitivity, Ultrasonography
, Radiography, Test for diabetes etc are required for proper diagnosis.
You are right that drinking loads of water make your urine less acidic & increase the frequency, thereby it might relieve some discomfort. Potassium citrare and citric acid combination often prevent buring sensation. Cranberry juice also helpful in recurrent UTI. Antimicrobial prophylaxis
is highly effective.
Consult with Urologist
for better management.
Hope this helps.
