Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Weird itch

Question
Slightly inflamed tip of penis (abnormally red? idk how its supposed to look)
Mild itchy urethra every now and again.
Pain urinating for one day last week.
Can't tell if glans skin is abnormally red/waxy?
please tell me what this is, I've had all STD checks, UTI checks and they all came back negative and even taken thrush medication.
Thanks.

Answer
Dave,

This could be just a simple inflammation of your urethra, caused by trauma from a tear (from intercourse or masturbation), or something like a fungus (jock itch) or even an allergen (any weird detergents you've been using recently?). For something to irritate only the outer urethra means its confined to the external environment and not an STI. Let me know if you have follow-up, but this sounds like something that will go away on its own or you can treat it the same way you would typical jock itch.

Cheers,

John
