What causes yellow penile discharge after the treatment of gonorrhoea?

I am a male and was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhoea 8 days ago and have seen no signs of discharge or urination pain clearing up. Actually the discharge has gotten thicker and leaving yellow stains in my underwear. I have not had any sex since before i was treated. What could be the cause?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per your case history of yellow discharge, my treatment advice is -
1. Continuation of yellow discharge is suggestive of gonorrhea infection still present.
2. Apply a mild antibiotic cream like fusiderm cream twice daily on it.
3. Other treatment options are oral doxycyline and azithromycin taken only after consulting a dermatologist.

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

I have whitish , painless discharge from my penis. I began to see the discharge after an intercourse with my girl friend. We both tested negative for Gonorhea and Chlamydia . We were given anti biotics and discharge cleared of. But we hard sex again and I began to see the discharge again. I have gone to my doctor and a another test was carried out but it was again negative. What could be the course of the this? There is no pain. I only see the discharge when I squeeze my penis. I have no fever , no heachache, no flu like symptoms although I have a mild muscle ache and feel cool inside the body.
