Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. It is likely that you have contracted a urinary tract infection. This is most commonly caused 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.
