Itch w/urine test negative for stds on many test, doc says possible allergy as it occurs only after drinking diet soda, is this possible?

Yeast?: STDs rarely cause urethral itching in men, no surprise standard STD tests are negative. If urethral discharge, consider nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), an STD usually caused by bacteria not detected with routine STD tests. If your diabetes is poorly controlled, maybe yeast (candida). Hard to imagine an allergic cause, or that it really is connected with diet soda. Keep working w/ your doctor.

No: The test looks for genetic material specific for the germs tested. It is not altered by an evening of social drinking.
