Brief Answer:
It is due to oral sex .

Detailed Answer:
hello
Thanks for follow up.

The itching that you have is due to inflammation of the urethral mucus membrane .

Oral cavity is full of various bacterial flora hence it is very common to get inflammation of urethra due to oral sex ,

The medicines that I have suggested is an antibiotic and has to be taken twice daily for 5 days .
