Unhappy Scared! Stinging in the urethra & doc prescribed terrible antibiotics

I am totally freaked out. Few days ago I suddenly got a stinging in the urethra. It became more frequent so I went to an urologist and took a swab. In the meantime the stinging became less frequent. Now I called and they said they found bacteria and I needed to take antibiotics but those antibiotics are so AWFUL I can impossibly take them. I have never read such a side effects list. They have cause various life threatening complications. There is no way I can take this. I would have to check in to the hospital and be under constant attention to be able to take this. The stuff is called Cotrim.
I hope that there are other less dangerous antibiotics which I can take instead.

I don't even know what bacteria I have and how I got them. I am not sexually active. How dangerous is an infection of the urethra? Do you always have to take such terrible antibiotics against them?

Unhappy Stinging IN the glans

I have been having a stinging for a few days now. The urologist took a swab and found bacteria. But since the stinging feels like it's in the tip of the glans and not really in the middle of the glans where the urethra is I don't know if the stinging might not be something else.
