Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that whatever treatment you are taking is right but one thing I will suggest is to get hormonal profile done specially serum free testosterone levels, since you say it affecting your part it could be androgenetic alopecia . Because if its due to hormonal imbalance it needs to be corrected .

Before you see any effect it will take 3-6 months as the life cycle of hair is that much . You can also try minoxidil 2% topically over your scalp , it is the recommend treatment and brings very good results .

Why are you taking levocetrizine and fluconazole , it must be due to some other reasons .

Take care.

Dear Madam,

Your treating doctor is treating you for fungal infection , that implies that you are having dandruff a lot . In that case the treatment should be same as your doctor has told but if its not fungal then hormonal imbalance is the primary cause .

Minoxidil 2% , you can get anywhere from the chemist shop but first determine the reason for hair fall . In my opinion see an endocrinologist for this problem as young girls today are affected by PCOS which can also present like this. Plus testosterone levels can be done from any standard lab , its a very common test .

I had casual sex a month ago and a few days after felt the head of my penis burning as well as the part between testicles and anus (urethra?). Some days I felt a sensation like urine incontinency and sometimes i detect discharge which looks and feels very much like pre-semen, but I have found that that discharge is mostly after having sex or just an erection.

I consulted a general medician first and a uro-whatever doctor afterwards. The latter made tests for chlamydia (blood test), VIH, Sifilis, and another urine test (I already had one taken with the first sympthoms). Everything was negative/ok, just mucin was high both times. Now, the first doctor recommended a treatment of Ciprofloxacine with some red pills that made me pee orage color, both for a week. The second doctor gave me some 7 pills that were a mixture of Tinidazole (250 mg), Azitromicine (500 mg) and Fluconazole (37.5) and instructed me to buy 3 more for a total 5 days. Since I was not able to get that combined pill in local drugstore I bought last two separated and Metronidazole instead of Tinidazole. I finished the treatment. Pain has mainwhile relieved mostly, but I still see the discharge. Any suggestions?
