Constant Burning Sensation In Tip Of Penis

I have a few questions and was wondering if you would be so kind to offer some professional insight.  I am a 34 year old heterosexual male and have been sexually active for over 19 years.  I have had many female partners during that time.  I have been to my family physician two times and I honestly believe he is clueless.  My next step is to visit a urologist.  I will list my symptoms below in an attempt to help you solve this mysterious & painful issue.  About 2 months ago I started noticing my genitals seemed irritated and itchy.  Shortly after that the tip of my penis started to burn.  This is a constant burning sensation.  During urination this burning sensation seems to go away.  I also seem to have some relief during intercourse.  I have also noticed that my rectum seems very irritated and itchy.  I have noticed some discomfort around my rectum while bathing.  I haven't noticed any discoloration, sores, or lumps, on my penis but the tip does seem much more sensitive.  During my first visit to my family physician, my doctor issued a urine test and prescribed 1 G ( 4 Pills ) of Azithromax.  I believe she suspected Gonorrhea or Chlamydia.  I explained to her at that time that I have no discharge from my penis so she seemed to be leaning more towards Chlamydia as a presumption.  My urine test came back negative.  A week later I returned to the same physician because the Azithromax offered no relief.  I saw a different physician but he had the last doctors notes to work from.  He immediately performed a swab of my penis and proscribed Doxycycline 100 MG capsules twice a day for 10 days.  His conclusion was I may have a prostate infection.  The culture returned negative for Chlamydia.  I did receive some relief for about 3 days towards the end of the prescription and then the burning sensation returned but seemed to be more intense.  During that period I asked my Girlfriend to be checked by her OBGYN.  She was diagnosed with a UTI after a urine specimen and was treated with Macrobid 100 MG capsules 2 a day for 7 days.  The only symptom she ever complained about was some discomfort during intercourse.  My girlfriend and I have had unprotected sex 4 times during my treatment.  I don't believe this is an STD because she isn't experiencing any of my symptoms.  I am not sure if my symptoms would manifest differently in a female but besides the UTI she is fine.  This constant burning sensation is driving me crazy.  Any ideas?
