Mysticdoc :

hello

Mysticdoc :

thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

why did you take antibiotic? is it for urinary tract infection?

Customer :

no problem

Customer :

im not sure, i went to see a doctor and she said this will reduce inflammation everywhere and ishould be feeling better in 24 hrs..

Customer :

i have been checked for uti and it came back negative

Mysticdoc :

ok

Mysticdoc :

did you have any unprotected sexual intercourse recently?

Customer :

as well as gonorhea and clamedya (pardon my spelling)

Mysticdoc :

ok

Customer :

no i only have sexual intercourse with my gf

Mysticdoc :

it seems then that you may have injured your urethra during sexual intercourse or whatever reason

Customer :

ok... i think u might be right

Mysticdoc :

urethral injury causes pain and also red blood

Mysticdoc :

it is not related to the infection.

Mysticdoc :

hence antibiotic will not be helpful.

Customer :

ok...

Customer :

so what should i do ?

Mysticdoc :

you may consider taking Pyridium available over the counter to reduce the symptoms.

Mysticdoc :

the healing takes place over next few days.

Mysticdoc :

avoid sexual intercourse in the meantime

Mysticdoc :

if persistent more than 5 days, then you need to see a urologist for a visualization of the urethra

Customer :

ok... i also found this little red dot on the left side of my penis... it mildly hurts only when i touch it.. any ideas?

Mysticdoc :

this can be a bleeding spot over the skin.

Mysticdoc :

another posibility is hair follicle infection.

Mysticdoc :

in that case antibiotic may be able to treat the hair follicle infection.

Customer :

the same antibiotic prescribed or a different one?

Mysticdoc :

no the same one

Customer :

ok, thank you so much. one last question...

Customer :

if i engage in sexual intercourse will this effect the healing process dramatically?

Mysticdoc :

it will delay the healing process, may even aggravate your condition.

Mysticdoc :

so please refrain for now including masturbation.

Customer :

i dont have any red blood coming when i urinate, do you still think it might be an injury in the urethra

Mysticdoc :

yes,

Mysticdoc :

due to the location of your pain.

Customer :

ok so pyridium for a few days and refrain from sexual activity whatsoever. right?

Customer :

would the application of neosporin help?

Mysticdoc :

yes, correct

Mysticdoc :

you do not need to apply neosporin

Mysticdoc :

neosporin may not be helpful.

Customer :

ok doc. thanks for all the help. so if this doesnt help i should go see urologist for a visual urethra.

Mysticdoc :

yes correct.

Mysticdoc :

good luck,

Customer :

thank you so much. atleast i know whats wrong with me now.

Customer :

take care!

Mysticdoc :

very welcome

Mysticdoc :

Please click ACCEPT button, if you do not have any further question, so that I get rewarded for my time & effort. Thank you!



Customer :

one more thing. you said its over the counter i dont need a prescription for pyridium?

Mysticdoc :

no

Mysticdoc :

the brand name is Azo.

Mysticdoc :

take 2 tablets 3 times a day.

Customer :

ok youve been alot of help i will leave u alone now lol. have a great day sir
