Suggest treatment for penile discharge

Hi I recently had a penile discharge(green) so I took levofloxacin but it didn't improve the. I change to doxycycline 3xday for 14days until. My penile discharge is all gone.. But after 10days it went back again, I have green discharge again. But I never had any sexual contact after my first treatment. What should I do? Can I take doxycycline again and I will and add azithromycin 1g single dose? Thanks

Thanks for contacting HCM with your medical concerns. From your description it sound like you have a STD and you have been treating it with levofloxacin and with doxycycline. There has been emergence of more antibiotic resistant strains of gonorrhea. In my practice I give an injection of ceftriaxone and then doxycycline and Zithromax. This combination reduces antibiotic resistant strains and helps reduce reoccurrence. Also have your partner treated with the same regimen
