Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
thanks for your question.
why did you take antibiotic? is it for urinary tract infection?
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..
i have been checked for uti and it came back negative
did you have any unprotected sexual intercourse recently?
as well as gonorhea and clamedya (pardon my spelling)
no i only have sexual intercourse with my gf
it seems then that you may have injured your urethra during sexual intercourse or whatever reason
ok... i think u might be right
urethral injury causes pain and also red blood
it is not related to the infection.
hence antibiotic will not be helpful.
so what should i do ?
you may consider taking Pyridium available over the counter to reduce the symptoms.
the healing takes place over next few days.
avoid sexual intercourse in the meantime
if persistent more than 5 days, then you need to see a urologist for a visualization of the urethra
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?
this can be a bleeding spot over the skin.
another posibility is hair follicle infection.
in that case antibiotic may be able to treat the hair follicle infection.
the same antibiotic prescribed or a different one?
no the same one
ok, thank you so much. one last question...
if i engage in sexual intercourse will this effect the healing process dramatically?
it will delay the healing process, may even aggravate your condition.
so please refrain for now including masturbation.
i dont have any red blood coming when i urinate, do you still think it might be an injury in the urethra
due to the location of your pain.
ok so pyridium for a few days and refrain from sexual activity whatsoever. right?
would the application of neosporin help?
you do not need to apply neosporin
neosporin may not be helpful.
ok doc. thanks for all the help. so if this doesnt help i should go see urologist for a visual urethra.
thank you so much. atleast i know whats wrong with me now.
Please click ACCEPT button, if you do not have any further question, so that I get rewarded for my time & effort. Thank you!
