Hello!

Thanks for query.

Based on the facts that you have posted increased frequency for urination and sensation of incomplete emptying of bladder that you have is most likely to be due to enlarged Prostate which needs to be confirmed by doing relevant investigations.

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis
3) Serum PSA.
4) Uroflowmetry

In the mean while start taking antibiotic like Ciprofloxacin and Nitrofurantoin twice daily along with Tamsulosin once daily.

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests and final diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query.
