Hi welcome to heath care magic

just for Red eyes need not take oral medicines.. you need to be clinically examined.. confirmed that you have got conjunctivitis.. topical application of gatiflox eye drops 3 drops 5 times a day,can be helpful.. better to avoid oral medications... consult a ophthalmologist..

I had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks

Hi I have the chills and nausea off and on. I also have vaginal pain and genital discomfort along with achy kidney. I do not have gonorrhea or trichanomonis or chylimidia or uti/kidney infection or stones as I have tested negative for them. What could be going on?

My 21 year old boyfriend was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea about 2 days ago and still complains of stinging and itching after urination and I'm having an unusual amount of white discharge lately, no smell. What could be wrong? Could it be something other than chlamydia? Could it be warts or herpes?

I had unprotected sex 3+ weeks ago and since then have had an ongoing tingling sensation just under the head of my penis. I was tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea negative. The pain usually subsides when I sleep and comes back once I wake up. It seems the pain is mostly linked to when I am sitting. There is no burning sensation while peeing.
