Hello,Lesions and infections elsewhere in the urinary or genital tract could get reffered to the penile head.It is a type of a reffered pain.You should get a urological examination get a cystocopy,ultrasound and culture and sensitivity test.
If indeed you have an organism causing this problem and it is susceptible to a paticular antibiotic you should take a full course of the antibiotic.It is not good to go by other's results.The chances of getting resistent organisms become higher if proper dose and period are not followed.
