Burning

Hi Dr

I have something strange happening to me at times.

Whenever I consume alcohol, my urethra starts burning about 5 minutes after a few sips, and then gradually the sensation disappears.

Can you please advise on what this may be?

Thank you

Dear Worried
Alcohol can cause urethral irritation which may be a cause of your symptoms. It is mentioned as a possible cause for Non-gonococcal urethritis.
