Urethritis in Men Treatment

Self-Care at Home

Home care for urethritis relieves its symptoms.

  • Drink fluids to dilute your urine. This will lessen the pain you feel when urinating.


  • You may take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and acetaminophen (for example, Tylenol) for pain control.


  • Sitz baths can help with the burning associated with chemical irritant urethritis. To take a sitz bath, fill the tub with 6-8 inches of warm water, just enough to cover your genitals when you sit in the tub. Try these a few times a day. Don't use soap or anything else in the bathtub that may irritate already sore areas.
