Doctor :   Thank you for your question. It is likely that you have contracted a urinary tract infection. This is most commonly caus ed by bacteria that get into the penile urethra causing inflammation. Since this has been occurring for a month, it is very important that you have a doctor perform a genital examination along with urine test to determine the cause of your infection. You will likely be prescribed antibiotics to treat this infection. Please seek medical attention immediately. Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
