Have you been tested for STDs or had a urine culture done yet?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No but I freaked out when it happened it was condom protected oral that lasted less than 30 seconds. I was given ceftriaxone ciprofloxacin and aziromythcin

How long ago did you those antibiotics?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
5 weeks ago I was given them
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Ok. Well then at this point, you definitely need to go back to the doctor to be tested for all STDs. Herpes is a possibility if the antibiotics didn't treat this. The only way to figure out exactly which antibiotic you need is to get the testing done to identify the organism causing your symptoms. Hope this helps.

Could it be uti or could the urine dribble sitting in foreskin cause it? Balanitis?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
It could be urine sitting in the foreskin. But it could be urethral discharge. I can't tell without being able to examine you
