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.

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.

Hi, I'm male, 30 yrs old and recently had unprotected sex with a girl i don't really know. As soon as the next day I noticed that my penis head was blotchy and red but without any pain or itching. There are no sores or blisters. This was now 4 days ago and there has been very litlle to no change in the symptoms. I have showered a couple of times and not used any creams or lotions. All the research I have done online suggests that it is very unlikely that these are the symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease but I am still very worried that I may have caught something, especially as I would not want to infect anyone else. Please help!

I have been experiencing cold-like symptoms for the last few days. My father had the same symptoms and was better after four or so days. Today, however, I noticed that my stool color was a clayish white accompanied with moderate abdominal pain on my right side. Is this cause for concern?

Additional information. I have been drinking plenty of fluids (water and gatorade with the occasional soda) and haven't had any dietary changes. I have been taking vitamin C tablets, Sudafed, and Nyquil. I was in the Bahamas three weeks ago. I have had intercourse with only my girlfriend in the last year, prior to I had been tested for hepatitis and other STDs, all of which came back negative. I also chew tobacco regularly.

Hi. I am a 20 year old female. I was recently treated for a UTI which lead me to have a yeast infection. I since have been treated for both. I was also tested for STDs, as I am very afraid of them- twice. All results were negative both times. I am still having a burning sensation however and having some pain on the left side close to where the back side of the pelvis bone is if that makes sense. I never get this pain on my right side and it more of a dull, throbbing pain. The doctor said my lymph nodes were fine and I'm going to get checked again next week- just wondering if you had any ideas?
