Hello doctor,

A few months ago, I got Chlamydia infection. I did the treatment and it is gone. But not totally. I still feel the burning in my penis. Some days it is strong and some days I do not feel much. I do not have a visible secretion but some symptoms are still there.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Burning sensation while urinating could be due to many causes like urinary tract infection, urethral exposure to irritants like soap, the presence of salts like urate or oxalate salts in urine, exposure to trauma or local fungal infection in the urethra.

In order to find out the exact cause please provide me with a photocopy of recent urinalysis. There are some measures that could be tried empirically like drinking plenty of water 4 to 5 liters per day.

Plus using Bactrim (Trimethoprim, Sulfamethoxazole) 200 every 12 hours for five days as an antibiotic.

Thank you doctor,

I will have to run the test in a laboratory. It will take some days. About the Bactrim 200, how can I get it?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Bactrim is a widely used antibiotic for urinary tract infection. You will get it easily. By the way, urinalysis takes a few minutes to be done, not longer.
