I have been diagnosed with strep throat for the past 3 to 4 weeks now. Could this be HIV?

I have been diagnosed with strep throat for the past 3-4 weeks now. I believe it is not strep throat because it really doesn t hurt or anything and I have a swollen lymph node under my jaw on the ride side. The doctor has been giving me azithromycin (250mg) as an antibiotics to treat it. But it seems like its not having any effects on me. I also have diarrhea along this. Every time I finish eating I have the urge to go striaght to the restroom. Could this be HIV? or just a normal stomach bug?

I was diagnosed with strep throat less than a month ago and was on penicillin for 14 days. I never had a rapid strep test done. Last night the left side of my throat began to get scratchy/sore and I notice it once again is red and there are white/light yellow pustules (less than a couple weeks ago, but still there). Could I have been misdiagnosed as having strep and it really could be tonsil cancer? I have been tired and having slight left ear pain since all of this has been going on also.

Hello Doctor

I would like to ask you that an infection happened to my cock from around 2 years when i was doing sex with a lady and i found some blood on the condom always when i do sex and i found blood on the condom i get infection as i always do sex using condom and i wash my cock with Cyteal.

The first time when it happened to me i saw some green gel on my boxer after i went to the doctor and she made for me an injection and gave me medicine ( Ofloxacin and Azitromcin ) and every thing was okay later on also it happened to me although i didn't have sex only oral and i went i take injections and same medicines than later on around 7 month again because of blood i took only the medicine and before 1 month it happened to me but i saw on my boxer a little drops of gel with no color than i took medicine and it went and always i can feel that i have something wrong when my penis is not getting hard 100 % like you can say only 70 % with a little little pain on the head and now i have the same thing my penis is not getting hard 100 % but there is no gel drops on my boxer ...

Thank you so much for your time and your advise.

Hi I have had a very small amount of discharge in the end of my Urethra some mornings if I squeeze all the way along my penis. I noticed this when I started checking due to me slowly finding it more difficult to urinate (seems to spray more than it used to but I've had a bit of a problem with this for years).I thought that it was an sti, and have been treated for chlamidia and am currently on a weeks course of ofloxacin to treat for nsu. I'm only a day away from the end of this treatment and I noticed it's still there this morning.Could this be something else?
