Hi. I got a tattoo a couple of months ago and it became infected. I went to urgent care where they prescribed some antibiotics. I finished the medication like I was supposed to, the redness has gone away. It looked like it was starting to heal but at night it itches real bad and burns like it is on fire. For the last few weeks it has been swelling so I have been trying to have it elevated as much as possible. Now my other foot is swelling more than the original one. Is this cause to be concerned about?

my mom got a tattoo a couple of weeks ago and now she has little red bumps all around it (not on it) that itch a lot and she states that if scratched it hurts(of course), I suggested that she put triple antibiotic ointment on it and that only seems to make it worse so she tried putting bacitracin ointment on it and this does not help either? also it seems to be spreading up her leg as well. any suggestions?

I had casual sex a month ago and a few days after felt the head of my penis burning as well as the part between testicles and anus (urethra?). Some days I felt a sensation like urine incontinency and sometimes i detect discharge which looks and feels very much like pre-semen, but I have found that that discharge is mostly after having sex or just an erection.

I consulted a general medician first and a uro-whatever doctor afterwards. The latter made tests for chlamydia (blood test), VIH, Sifilis, and another urine test (I already had one taken with the first sympthoms). Everything was negative/ok, just mucin was high both times. Now, the first doctor recommended a treatment of Ciprofloxacine with some red pills that made me pee orage color, both for a week. The second doctor gave me some 7 pills that were a mixture of Tinidazole (250 mg), Azitromicine (500 mg) and Fluconazole (37.5) and instructed me to buy 3 more for a total 5 days. Since I was not able to get that combined pill in local drugstore I bought last two separated and Metronidazole instead of Tinidazole. I finished the treatment. Pain has mainwhile relieved mostly, but I still see the discharge. Any suggestions?
