Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As per the description of your symptoms, its more pointing towards infection. Because stricture urethra may have symptoms of decreased urinary stream, straning at urination and there will be bladder outlet obstruction also.

So from the clinical symptoms , I can conclude it may be infection. Any ways its better to rule out the exact problem which is causing.

Please consult a urologist If your problem is not corrected by a course of antibiotics .

In my clinic I usually treat my patients like this with empirical antibiotic therapay with combination of cefixime200+ ofloxocin 200 twice daily for a week , Urinaray alkanizer like citralka syrup 20 ml thrice a day and plenty of oral fluids. If it will not subside I will refer to a urologist.
