Question: Hi,

1 n half month back i started to have this burning sensation in my penis. It is there all the time. It goes for 2 or 3 days but come back again for 1 day. My all urine tests report where normal and as per doctors i am suffering with dehydration only. My ultrasound test and LFT is normal. My latest urine test reports are as follows RBC 0-2, Pus Cells 1-2, EP 0-2 and rest is all normal. Burning symptoms still persists. I have no discharge nothing except sometimes lower abdomen pain which doctor said that i have gas as per ultrasound reports. Prostate and everything else is normal as per ultrasound. Burning sensation is still there. I am drinking lots of water and since 2 days taking cefuroxime and alkalinizer as per one doctor he suggests mild infection. Please advise

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, let me advise you to wait for urine culture test, which gives us the diagnosis of urinary infection.
You're presently being treated on basis of urine routine test only.
It'll take two days, for culture report to come.
If burning sensation is more severe, you can take Tablet Phenazopyridine 200mg, at least twice daily. It'll give an orange tinge to urine. Once stopped, it'll disappear.
Taking the alkaliser in lime juice, gives better relief in many.
You don't need to worry at all, as other reports are normal.
Drink 10-12 glasses of liquids daily.
Wish you a speedy recovery.

Thank you doctor.

I was not advised for any Urine culture test as i was told i have very mild infection due to which i was getting 1-2 pus cells. I will start lime juice. But please advise if you suggest me for a urine culture test. If yes, then will taking antibiotic effects urine culture test or no? I was advised to take cefuroxime 250 mg 2 times for 5 days( still 3 days left) along with alkanizer. Please advise.

Brief Answer:
you're welcome.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again.
Well, i'm surprised from your message.
A urine routine of minimum 5-10 pus cells, only is indicative of a possible infection.
As you've less than 5 pus cells in routine test, a culture could have been done.
Once antibiotic is started, culture isn't done, as it'll be normal.
Any way, complete the course and you should be fine.
If at all, you should have similar symptoms in future, do get an urine culture first.
Drinking 8-10 glasses liquids daily, is a good preventive measure.
Get well soon.

Hello, male 33 years old. Had some blood and urine work done. All came back normal. Thyroid, glucose , WBC , RBC , Cholesterol , Kidney and Liver function. They found a small about of RBC in urine, Dr mentioned 3-5 and urine was very concentrated. Dr wants to repeat the test in a few weeks. Given everything else is normal she feels this is due to dehydration. Too much coffee and alcohol and not enough water. Told me not to worry. Does this sound about right?

I have a daughter that is 17 and runs distance races of 1 mile to 3 mile in HS. For about a year now she has continued to have probelms with regulating her Ferritin levels. Supplements are use to raise them, but once reduced the Ferritin leve drops off fairly quickly (in few months). In an April blood test her RBC count had dropped just below normal. I have read how low B12 (among other things) can impact RBC count. We have not had a B12 blood test ran yet, but with the season near year end I wanted to know if having her take a 1000 mcg would be okay in case it might help until we get a blood test in the near future. It appears that doing this for a short period of time would be unlikely to have any ill side affects.

In addition, a non-doctor athletic trainer recommended a Manganese B12 supplement at a high dosage, 100 mcg for two weeks, then 60 mcg for 3 weeks. I have read how high dosage or exposure to Manganese can have harmful side affects. Is this dosage high enough and/or long enough to cause adverse side affects?
