Itching in the penis, testicles. Sensitive to touch. Burns during urination. Reason?

Hi: About 2 weeks ago, I started to feel an itching in the shaft and down through the testicles. The head of the shaft is very sensitive to the touch. There is no secretion , however the urine burns when I go to the bathroom. I have been married over 20 years and not been with anyone else. I don t have a doctor, just a nurse practitioner. Little embarrassing going to see a young girl. There is not redness, no rash , no bumps, just this very anoying burning, and itching feeling. Some friendly advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dan

Hello dear...
The symptoms mentioned by you such as burning sensation during urination suggest that you might be having Urinary tract infection.
The treatment involves:
1. Drinking lots of water (it dilutes the urine & reduces the burning sensation)
2. Antibiotics such as Ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice in a day.
3. If there is associated fever, then paracetamol 500 mg three times in a day can be added.
One more thing...avoid acidic foods, carbonated drinks and alcohol...& maintain good hygiene.
There is no need to will perfectly alright.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
