Hi Dr XXXXXXX

Thank you for your quick response. So there is nothing i need to worry about and it should be cured within a week, correct? In addition, this never happened to me before, maybe i was a but rough yesterday but was not waiting such picture.

Do you recommend using shampoo or any lubricants upon curing this?

I have checked again, it looks a bit better, it does not heart, neither upon urinating, neither on pull back. It just looks swollen a bit, as seen from the pictures taken.

Looking forward to your responses

Thank you very much for your prompt responses, appreciate that.

Dear Dr. XXXXXXX
one more question with reference to that, as being suggested from your end. I need to take Cefotaxime along with Diclofenac twice per day for a week time period. Since those drugs requires prescription, i need to visit doctor for that and have it checked with Urologist.

Is it of urgency before i visit to Doctor, or is there any home-remedies for that, before i visit? I have read, CLOTRIMAZOLE will be in good use for that, I might have delays for 1 or two days, and meanwhile would apply this cream before visiting doctor. Is it good idea to change Underwear for a day or it does not matter in this case?

Thank you in a advance and thanks for being a helpful
