Sore glans. 2 UTI in 7 months. Pain in back & groin. Cystoscopy found urethra to be very red. Given many urine samples over the last year. Any ideas?

Interstit. cystitis. Have the urine cultures been positive? Must consider interstitial nephritis (diagnosis made with cystoscopy) or infection with atypical bacteria such as chlamydia or mycoplamsa. Course of tetracytcline might help. Also chronic prostatitis comes to mind. Need prostate massage with cultures and treatment with drug that enters prostate gland (septra/bactrim). Might need life long therapy.
