Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I've been experiencing a mild burning sensation at the opening of my urethra when I urinate for the first time. However, this sensation doesn't occur thereafter. I want to clarify that I'm not sexually active. I've noticed that drinking more water helps alleviate the discomfort. Are there any remedies or solutions I can try that don't involve antibiotics?



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


The burning sensation you're experiencing could stem from various factors. If you're an older man, it's crucial to consider the possibility of an enlarged prostate, as this could be an early symptom. However, if this doesn't apply to you, it's possible that the sensation is due to the accumulation of salts or secretions overnight.


Your observation about the alleviation of symptoms with increased water intake is noteworthy. Hydration can indeed help flush out any irritants or substances that may contribute to discomfort during urination.


To address your concern, I recommend undergoing a urine analysis. This will provide valuable insights into the composition of your urine and any potential abnormalities. In the meantime, I advise you to continue drinking plenty of water. This not only helps maintain hydration but also supports the flushing out of any irritants.


Once we have the results of the urine analysis, we can tailor a more targeted approach to managing your symptoms. Depending on the findings, we may explore additional treatment options or lifestyle adjustments to promote urinary health.
