Avatar m tn The following drugs were prescribed the for me Ciprofloxacin. After using the drug for some days, the burning sensation stopped and the red swollen vanished. I continued to use the drugs until I comleted the dosage. Despite that the burning sensation and the red swelling vanished, I still have the thick white discharge from the tip of my penis till date. It is three months now and I still have this complaint. Please what is my fate? How do I get rid of this gonorrhea? Please help.
Avatar m tn either you have cipro-resistant gonorrhea (cipro should never be used against gonorrhea, it is highly unreliable); or some sort of non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU). You need to return again to your doctor. Or see an STD specialist, if your doctor isn't one. This will be sorted out eventually, but you're going to need additional testing and probably different antibiotics. Please return with a follow-up ocmment about how it all turns out.
Avatar n tn Anyway, he prescribed me 7 days of doxycycline (can't recall the dosage, but twice per day) and also 7 days of cipro (500 mg, twice per day). My symptoms are so mild that unless i really look i can't detect the perfectly clear discharge and i see nothing in the morning when i wake up (mostly the afternoon) Pain during urination, i.e. that stinging or strong burning is still not there either. I've read of chronic NGU requiring months of treatment and i'm a bit on edge about it.
Avatar f tn Even prompt improvement following ceftriaxone is more likely a coincidence than it is evidence of gonorrhea. (I'm rather amazed a doctor would have treated you for ocular gonorrhea in this circumstance, without testing for it. This sounds like a rather fishy story, I have to say.) Further, in the event I'm wrong and you had gonorrhea, there is no realistic chance of autoinoculation to your eye while in the shower (and in the presence of soap and water).
Avatar f tn Yes, it can be gonorrhea or chlamydia, which is something I need to test for orally. It's been very hard for me to find anyone to test for this orally in my area.
Avatar m tn I do not have insurance, or the $ to pay for more dr bills as I'm in far too much debt from a surgery last yr. I had unprotected sex and noticed symptoms of either chlamydia or gonorrhea, my discharge is rare, usually after ejaculations and urination, and it is clear, I have frequent urination some days, burning, and testicular pain n my left testicle. Last wk I took 4-250mg azithromycin I had from a left over z pak. I'm still having slight discharge issues. It's always clear. And not much.
Avatar n tn or to have routine testing after ~6 weeks, by which time all the standard tests are reliable (gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, HIV). Definitely there is no role for ciprofloxacin, which is not useful against any STD.
Avatar n tn It is unlikely any STD is the cause of the spot on your tonsil, but because of the slim chance of gonorrhea and borderline treatment, you could be tested for it. To be maximally safe, also have an HIV test in a few weeks -- but don't lose a lot of sleep about it in the meantime; almost certainly it will be negative.
Avatar m tn the negative results show you didn't have them, as long as you had not taken antibiotics. 3) The single doses of ciprofloxacin (for gonorrhea) and azithromycin (for chlamydia and other causes of nongonococcal urethritis, or NGU) were correct. There was no need for doxycycline (also for chlamydia and NGU), but the dose was correct. The valacyclovir (Valtrex) dose is that recommended for recurrences of oral herpes, and not for either initial or recurrent genital herpes.
Avatar n tn The cipro was intended to cover gonorrhea, often done routinely at the start of treatment for NGU. It is true that your initial antibiotic therapy could have made test results for gonorrhea and chlamydia falsely negative. However, if you had either of them, the combination of cipro and doxy would have cured you. In other words, the persistence or reappearance of discharge after treatment is proof against both chlamydia and gonorrhea as the original infection.
Avatar m tn Thank you for fast repsonse Doctor. I was prescribed one dose of Ciprofloxacin and Azithromycin for 5 days (1/day). I'm not quite sure what the dosage was but I can out find out if it is necessary. The MD in the ER did do penile swab and a urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia. They were both negative. The other doctor I saw after the ER visit did a urine test as well and that came up negative too. She also prescribed me another 5 days worth of Azithromycin for my lingering sinus infection.
Avatar n tn Day 2 and onwards slight pain in urethra but no pus, no discharge and no pain when urinating or frequence of urinating, Day 3 took 1 gram zithromax (stupid i know now) Day 5 got tested for Clamydia and Gonorrhea, persuaded the doctor to give 2 grams of Zithromax to cure any gonorrhea. Day 7, test results was negative for both clamydia and gonorrhea, but still experienced slight pain in urethra.
Avatar n tn by injection coupled with 7 days of doxycycline 2Xdaily (forgot the dosage) and 20 tablets of Metronidazole (which I opted not to take). After the injection + doxycycline, everything appeared to return to normal. On 4/26 I visited a different hospital b/c of some latent anxiety and had a # of tests run - HIV, gon., etc. Everything came back negative. Whew!
Avatar n tn If, even though you were condom protected, you wish to be tested for genital exposures as well, tests for gonorrhea, chlamydia and nongonococcal urethritis are appropriate. Your blood can be tested for syphilis and HIV. The tests on your throat and genital specimens will be valid for both exposures you describe. The blood tests only for the one about 3.5 weeks ago. the probability that any of these tests will be positive is miniscule. 3. Some are, some are not.
Avatar n tn Mupirocin and anti-fungal medications from dermatologist 2. Zithromax + Tergecef single dosage of each 3. Ciprofloxacin (one per day extended dose) for 7 days 4.

HSV1/HSV2 (IGG/IGM) - after three weeks with symptoms 3.
Avatar m tn You need to stop with all of this medication. Stop for 2 weeks and then see 1 Dr for some testing. Just thorwing medication at something and seeing several Dr's is not doing you any good.
Avatar m tn Analysis of a urine sample revealed nothing alarming. I was treated for a UTI and prescribed a three day course of ciprofloxacin (250mg twice daily). The PA also took blood samples to be sent off for a full panel of STD tests. I returned to my doctor on May 17, as the Cipro appeared to have no impact. The burning sensation had intensified significantly, but there was still no sign of discharge or other symptoms. This time, I requested a doctor.
Avatar m tn NGU following oral sex is thought to be most often caused by bacteria from the mouth which get into the urethra to cause the irritation that it sounds like you experienced. Short courses of ciprofloxacin often are not effective for NGU and the subsequent therapy you receive (doxycycline and rocephin [ceftriaxone] are the recommended therapy for both gonorrhea and NGU, the two most likely causes of your symptoms. You should let your partner know that you experiences these symptoms.
Avatar m tn the result was epididymal cyst ( spermatocele ) due to an infection - a doctor gave me 10 x 500 mg Ciprofloxacin and the diagnosis of epididymitis on the right side ( that was the cause of my lower abdominal and testicles pains + the cyst ) [b]Seven weeks[/b] after the contact: - the tingling and the penis pains seems to stopped - lower abdominal and testicle pain + swollen vein continued; - i've started to take Ketoprofen ( an anti-inflammatory drug for epididymitis imflamation) [b]Nine we
Avatar m tn about six months ago i was infected with clamydia and tested positive, shortly afterward i had a new partner whom im with currently, she was infected also, we both took azithromax 1 gram dosage in one go, she had some diarhea shortly after, so we got another prescription of Doxy for seven days each, all seemed well and i was retested a month after negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea at the same time i was tested for (HIV negative as well) shortly thereafter: i had some burning, in my urethra
Avatar m tn He said this is caused by e.coli bacteria and prescribed Ciprofloxacn for 28 days. I took one dosage 500mg and started to have hives. So, I discontinued the medication and will contact him on Monday to change the prescription. After research, it appears that Orchitis in young men results mostly from Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. E. coli seems a possibility, but it might be remote since I did not develop this since after I had the two-condom protected intercourse.
Avatar n tn That didn't work. I had my prostrate checked and it seemed ok. But i was put on 250mg of Ciprofloxacin for two weeks, just in case - no change. I then had my prostrate checked again and it was more painful (i don't if it was just an agressive check vs no agressive check) and the physician said it felt boggy, so i was diagnosed with Prostatitis. I was put on 500mg of Ciprofloxacin, now for 6 weeks and there does not seem to be any change.
Avatar m tn 1) 36 hours is about the earliest possible time frame for symptoms; 2-5 days is usual for gonorrhea, 7-10 days for chlamydia. The alternative is some sort of physical or chemical irritation. However, the symptoms came on too late for that; such a cause usually would be apparent immediately, perhaps as long as 6 hours but no more. However, if your regular girlfriend exposed you to something irritating -- spermicide, vaginal deodorant, etc -- perhaps that's the explanation. 2) Yes.
Avatar m tn One was a push (cant remember what it was) and the other was a drip IV of Ciprofloxacin. Additionally they gave me a 14 day prescription of Ciprofloxacin (500mg twice a day). My Penis pain has decreased significantly but not gone away completely. (12 hours after the IV) I trust your advice and wanted to know your thoughts? You had mentioned earlier that you felt that my risk for HIV was nearly non existent.
