Thank you for the query.

Yes, this sounds like an infection symptoms. Burning of the penis tip is quite characteristic for the very first part of urethra). You may also suffer from burning while urinating, frequent urinating, feeling of incomplete urinating. Pain in the anus can be a symptom of prostate inflammation. Especially if it is sharp (nerve like) pain.

I suggest you to visit your doctor and have urine analysis done. Abdominal ultrasound should be also performed to see kidneys condition. In case of pus cells presence in the urine, antibiotic should be prescribed. If the infection wont go away after antibiotic treatment (especially sharp pain in the anus), you should see urologist.

You should also drink plenty of water (like 2-3 liters/a day) and have cranberries supplements.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

Your urine analysis is negative. Says its no infection present. In such situation, if the symptoms are still present, urine culture and swab test of the penis tip should be next.

I suggest you to visit your doctor before this tests. He may decide to try antibiotics first (what is usually effective).
