Welcome to icliniq.com.
I read your query and understand your concerns.
From the available pictures (attachments removed to protect patient identity) there is ample evidence of balanitis (inflammation of prepuce) and urethritis (inflammation of urethra).
Since both condition can be caused by multiple bacteriological agents there is a need to get antibiotic treatment. The best thing is to get local swab and send it to microbiology for culture and sensitivity. In case that is not possible get empirical antibiotic treatment.
- In countries where this is an endemic problem, we use Azithromycin 1 g for three days to majority of patients. You can ask prescription for same from your primary care physician.
- I must assure you that this is treatable condition and there is nothing to worry.
- In addition get same treatment for your sexual partner, if any, as the problem tend to gets transmitted during sex.
