User :   yes, i believe i got my girlfriends baterial infection. I have redness on the head of my pennis. it gets inflamed ervey time i have sex or masterbate.
Doctor :   hello
Doctor :   let me read your query
Doctor :   since when have you noticed this discomfort?
Doctor :   may i know your age please ?
User :   for the last month,...but it seems to go away after a day or so. ...even faster when i apply some hydrocortozone cream.
User :   i am 29
Doctor :   have you noticed any discharge from your penis?
User :   no, dont think there is any discharge.
Doctor :   or any burning sensation when you urinate ?
User :   a slight tickle or itching when i urinate
Doctor :   any other symptoms like fever?
User :   no, just the inflamation. There are no bumps, just redness and kinda puffy.
Doctor :   ok well it does look you have a infection there
Doctor :   Drink fluids to dilute your urine. This will lessen the pain you feel when urinating
Doctor :   You may take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and acetaminophen (for example, Tylenol)
Doctor :   also i would advise you to get a physical examination done and there a swab test and urine test will be done, these tests are important as then we can pin point the exact cause of this infection
Doctor :   and then accordingly you will be prescribed antibiotics by your physician which will lead to a complete cure
Doctor :   The duration of treatment ranges from 3 to 14 days.
Doctor :   your girls friend should also get tested
Doctor :   You should not have sex or you should use condoms until all partners have completed medical therapy.
User :   ok, well i appreciate the advise, but i was obviously trying to bypass going to a doctors office by coming on this site. The doctors office is too expensive and i dont have insurance. Do you know what type of antibiotics might work? ...so i can just try to buy them online.
Doctor :   i can understand your situation but unfortunately one should not take these infections lightly and get a complete cure at a very early stage, it is important for you to get the tests done as then only we can be sure what type of bacteria is causing it and accordingly antibiotics are prescribed
User :   ok, thank you
Doctor :   have cranberry juice and blueberry juice
Doctor :   as they have antioxidants and they help in reducing the infection
Doctor :   dont forget to have plenty of water
Doctor :   is there anything else i can help you with ?
User :   no thats all, thanks
