Welcome to Just Answer.
Did you have any other test?
no just the urine test?
Do any of this sound like herpes?
Your symptoms suggest an urethritis or inflammation of urethra.
This is often caused by gonorrhea & chlamydia.
Sometimes other organisms can cause it.
Gon and Clam both came back negative
Did you get the lesion checked by doctor.
No, he didnt seem to think much of it
Ureaplasma, mycoplasma, trichomonas etc. can cause such infection & cause discharge.
Doxycycline is usually helpful.
How many doses you have taken so far?
the actual lesion itself is just a little larger than a ballpoint pen
1 day 1. 2 yesterday and 2 today
The lesion needs to be checked by doctor again.
Doxycycline is usually advised to take for a week.
It can sometime to have effect.
It can take 2-3 days too.
what kind of effect?
Effect means to have relief of symptoms.
Please drink plenty of fluid.
This will help to relieve symptoms by increasing urine output.
sorry to be graphic but that is what i looks like
ok. I have been drinking alot less because it hurts :(
There seems to be a minute ulcer with inflammation.
Was there any blister?
not that i noticed
it never hurt or anything
Just seeing that had me thinking herpes, but everything i have seen suggests if i had gotten herpes there would be alot more to it?
Yes, herpes usually cause blisters.
And more eruptions are expected.
It can be from trauma too but I would suggest to take an examination by doctor. He can take a swab for testing.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know
does it appear to be a singular herpes blister? Is it possible to get a singular blister
Not typical for herpes. But sometimes variation can occur.
ok. So wait a couple days on the Doxy to see if that helps? Any particular kinds of fluids better than others,, or any to stay away from?
You can wait a few days to see how doxy works.
Simple water is the best fluid.
If you have any further query, please feel free to ask.
OK. if the pain goes away in a day or two should i still get the lesion checked out?
It is better to get the lesion checked to be certain about its nature.
sounds good. Thanks for the help
