Not to worry.Complete cure is possible.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.

Nothing much to get upset.

1.Antibiotics of choice can be changed
2. Partners have to be treated
3. Single dose therapy may not be effective
4. As with olden days recommendation, a 3 weeks therapy may be effective.
If you can tell that the type of treatment you had taken already, I may extend more help to you.

Brief Answer:
Consult physician,take medicines with his guidance

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.
Doxycycline single dose usually not recommended.
Tablet Azithromycine 1 gm is recommended as a single dose Capsule Doxy recommended as 100 mg. twice daily for 1 week. Previously the same was recommended for three weeks along with partner management to achieve a complete cure.
Abstinence from sex during sex is a must.
Consult your STD physician (Dermato-venereologist) and take the medicine as per his/her guidance.

doctor
Answered by Dr. S. Murugan 31 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Physician has to decide.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome once again.
Cap Doxycyclin twice daily for three weeks is the best option, if the patient came with relapse with single dose therapy. If the patient has the problem persisting then the diagnosis of the condition is to be reviewed. Your physician is the correct person to judge about your treatment.

I had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks
