My problem started 5 years ago when I was working at

Customer Question

Hello
My problem started 5 years ago when I was working at hospital.
I feel burning in my urethra and I am pissing 30 times a day. There is a redness on my penis and little red pimples. I took already all antibiotics against bacteria, medicaments for overactive bladder, for prostate, and finally I was circumcised three months ago.
Nothing helps. After circumcised (three months go ) I still want to piss , my penis is red and there are pimples.
In the past, in Europe, one Urologist took a swab from my urethra and he told me there is enterococcus faecalis. Here, in USA all doctors say - everything is OK. But I am still suffering and nothing is OK. I heard about LINEZOLID against enterococcus faecalis. What you would recommend? Should I send a picture?

Can you please enumerate all the medications that you have used till now?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is very difficult to say.
At the beginning I started from antibiotics. Here in US laboratories - In my urine- they do not find anything and keep saying that I am healthy and I do not take any medication. In Europe they took a swab from urethra and found ent. faecalis. I did antibiogram and started from antibiotics - Doxycycline, penicyline, cipronex and few more. I don't really remember all of them. Every time I took antibiotics I was much worse. Doctor said- After antibiotic you will feel better but every time I took it I had a huge attack- redness under foreskin and pissing 60 times a day. When I stopped taking antibiotics It was better.
After all I was taking some medication for overactive bladder but It was big mistake. Than I was taking something for prostate. It did not help at all. Another urologist advice circumcision. After circumcision I felt little better I guess, but problem came back. Two weeks ago I started using Clotrimazol cream- antifungal but I don't see any change.

Hello

the other expert has opted out.

You need to stop all medications and have the skin biopsied.

This will give a diagnosis so you are not guessing.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
