Suggest treatment for pain near the tip of penis

Hi, my name is Devon and I just went swimming on a beach. In about 3 hours of being in and out of the water i experience a slight pain near the tip of my penis. I came home and the tip of my penis is red and hurts very very much to touch and I can t do anything without it hurting. I don t know what this is and can you please tell me how to stop it quick. Thankyou very very much.

Hello and welcome to HCM,
Pain on tip of penis can be due to urinary tract infection (UTI), reproductive tract infection (RTI) or trauma to the tip of penis.
I suggest you to get an urine examination to look for evidence of UTI.
In case, any evidence of UTI is discovered, antibiotic therapy for UTI can be started.
Is the pain accompanied by rash, enlarged lymph nodes or discharge?
If yes then probably the pain is due to RTI.
In such a case, avoid unprotected sex till the infection is treated.
However, a clinical assessment is required followed by relevant investigations and thus treatment.

Thanks and take care
