Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have UTI

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Did you have unprotected sex before you noticed this symptom.?

The swollen nerve you are taking about is not a nerve but may be a dilated tributary of dorsal vein of penis.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1)Please get your routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.
2)Swab Test and culture of a drop of discharge from urethra.

In the mean while start taking broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefexine along with urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkaliser thrice daily.Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.

Ensure to drink more water.To keep your urine dilute This will help to control dysuria.
