Burning and stinging during urinating and ejaculating indicates urinary tract infection or reproductive tract infection.

Association with lower back pain and red dots on shaft of the penis strongly suggests a reproductive tract infection which may be sexually transmitted disease.

In case you have discharge, get the discharge examined - culture and sensitivity. This test will isolate the organism causing these symptoms. If you have no discharge, your can be cultured to isolate the organism. An antibiotic can only be prescribed when the organism is isolated.
Besides, get a urine examination also.
Meanwhile, abstain from sex as these infections may be sexually transmissible.

In case you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.

hello there is no discharge, what possibilties can it be?
Answered by Dr. Shailja Puri 15 hours later
Hello and welcome again,

Absence of discharge does not rule out infection.
The urine test should be carried out in the absence of discharge.

Do visit your doctor for clinical evaluation and consider getting the aforementioned test. The investigations will guide us in prescribing the right antibiotic.

Hi, I'm male, 30 yrs old and recently had unprotected sex with a girl i don't really know. As soon as the next day I noticed that my penis head was blotchy and red but without any pain or itching. There are no sores or blisters. This was now 4 days ago and there has been very litlle to no change in the symptoms. I have showered a couple of times and not used any creams or lotions. All the research I have done online suggests that it is very unlikely that these are the symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease but I am still very worried that I may have caught something, especially as I would not want to infect anyone else. Please help!
