I have irritation/redness just on the inside of the tip of the penis. Slight discomfort (feels like chafing). No Itching burning during urination. No bumps or rash on the penis or testicles. I noticed over the past week or so I seem to have a need to urinate more frequently and the urine seems to had a slight odor. I had sex about a week or so ago but I used a condom and was very safe. Does this sound like a UTI or a STD? Ive never had either one before.
In my opinion you have a UTI
I recommend doing urine analysis to confirm and determine the next step
For me yes it is UTI get a urine culture and antibiotic course..
Sounds more like a UTI than STD
its not typical of an STD. feels more like an UTI. drink plenty of water and vitamin C rich fruit juices. Start on proper antibiotics after getting the urine tested for organisms.
maintain good genital hygiene
JUST SEE WHICH ORGANISM BY GETTING URINE CULTURED. OFLOXACIN TABLETS WILL HELP.
RULE OUT RENAL STONES BY GETTING USG ABDOMEN DONE.
UTI is more likely although,STDs can be a rare possibility. Initial stages of STDs can also present in a similar fashion.
Get blood tests done to rule out STDs
