Dear Sir

This is XXXXXXX i hope u remember me , i had contacted u last month(June 12) with regards to infection in the penis due to std.

I was residing in bangkok recently XXXXXXX visited a hospital and consulted a urologist, he examined penis and said there was discharge from the penis, and treated with injection and antibiotic( DOXYCYCLINE-100 MG Capsule)

I was using that anticbtiotic for two weeks and it finished,

i had done a blood test to determine if i have diabeties, and i do have diabeties , of 197

Could be due Genital Candidiasis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Genital Candidiasis (Fungal Infection of the genitals)

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Did you have unprotected sex before you noticed these symptoms ?
2) Do you have itching of the genital?
3) Have you done swab test and culture of urethral discharge before you started taking Doxicycline?

Please get swab test and culture of the urethral discharge to confirm the diagnosis.

In the mean while start taking antibiotic like Erythromycin and anti fungal medication like Fluconozole twice daily and topical anti fungal jelly like Fluconozole for local application.

Ensure to wash your genitals with warm water twice daily

Ensure to avoid sexual encounters till it heals up completely.
