User :   i have also a tiny pink single spot on my penis shaft near the foreskin. could this be anything?
Doctor :   drink plenty of water to dilute to flush away the toxins. Drinking cranberry juice is also very effective.
Doctor :   is the spot increasing in size ?
User :   no its the same size the last week. its really small. i may have had it all the time
Doctor :   Wear cotton underwear to allow moisture to escape as trapped moisture becomes a potential ground for infection. The infection could be prevented if water is consumed in plenty and regularly in order to flush the bacteria from the urinary tract. The intake of vitamin C reduces the number of harmful bacteria in the tract.
Doctor :   Daily intake of Vitamin C in the diet will increase the acidity content of the urine and prevent bacterial growth. If you are suffering from UTI, intake of 1000mg of Vitamin C everyday is quite effective in preventing the recurring infections.
Doctor :   along with it just get a urine test
Doctor :   dont worry a antibiotic course will make you all better in no time
Doctor :   For the cure and prevention, it is strongly recommended to have foods rich in fiber content along with water. This will help in naturally flushing the impurities along with bacteria from the body.
