Thanks for your query,

If the burning sensation in the penis is during passing urine its a clear sign of urethral infection.

If there is visible redness present over the glans penis ( red mucous part of the penis ) it could be due to balanaitis which could be either due to infection or allergy.

I could be more specific in answering your query if you can provide some more details on your problem like :

1)Is the burning pain during or after urination or is it continuous ?

2)Do you see any discharge from urethra after urination ?

3)Do you have fever now or in recent days?

4)Is there any swelling or redness in the penis ?

Will wait for the information.
