Suggest treatment for pain during urination and itching of penis

jan 1 i noticed light greenish fluid seeping from my penis and I went into the ER to be treated. They didn t swab me or take a urine sample, all they did was assume what I had was an STD, either Chlamydia or gonorrhea. I took the zithromax and received a shot in the arm. Now, my penis head itches but the discharge and painful urination is gone. My question is can i get swabbed to determined what exactly i have/had though I ve been medicated for 3 days now?

Hello,

The presumed antibiotic therapy at first glance is okay, but as now there is itching penis and associated UTI the causative organism in form of gonorrhea or else have to be identified with urine and discharge swab culture reports.

Must discuss the need of same with your treating physician at earliest.

Till that time, drink plenty of liquids and keep the area clean with antiseptic liquid, avoid sexual intercourse till recovery.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
