Question: Just in response to your e mail, I went to see my doctor today as I've had a low grade fever ( lots of flu in the area) as some prostate trouble. This trouble has been diminishing slowly but surely. I have some pain and inflammation in the area of theprostate uretha, and a little bit of itching and slight discomfort the odd time when urinating. No pus or discharge. getting checked out. I don't think its an STD as I am protected and careful, and I this type of symptoms often which go away after antibiotics.Guess my question is, anything to worry about??

Brief Answer: Need evaluation for causes for recurrent infection Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Thanks for writing to HCM. I went through your query and understood your concerns. From your history you are experiencing recurrent Urinary tract infection. So i would like to get evaluated for causes for recurrent infection. Get blood sugar test done and scan to see for renal stones and X-ray of KUB region for any renal abnormality. Antibiotics for infection to be taken based on urine culture and sensitivity testing and should be taken for minimum 7 days and after treatment need to confirmcure of infection by repeting urine culture again. Usually fluroquinalone group of antibiotics are used and anti inflammatory medications and alkalizing agent like citralka and plenty of water to be taken. I hope these answers have been both informative and helpful for you. Should you have additional concerns I would be happy to address them. Wish you good health. regards
