Question: So hey there doc, I have sore throat; I'm a casual smoker can't smoke too much or sore throat i SUSPECT. But my sore throat developed while I had burning clear discharge's from the penis. I was tested for gonno. and siphylis but my test results were negative....

Brief Answer:
Gurgling with lukewarm water should provide relief.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have carefully gone through your query and understand your concerns. It seems that you have an allergic reaction called post nasal drip which could be responsible for your sore throat. Taking some antiallergic like cetirizine once a day for a few days as and when required, and gurgling with lukewarm water should provide relief. There could be a bacterial or viral infection associated but you need not get concerned and merely gurgling with lukewarm water should suffice. But you need to cut down on the smoking as it could be acting as the trigger.

You need not get concerned about the colourless discharge from your penis.

Let me know if you have further queries and I would be happy to help.

Regards
