Good day,

I am experiencing some burning within my penis and some whitish discharge that comes out 3-4 times an hour. I started witnessing this after I had unprotected sex.

Dear,

What you are describing sounds like an infection called gonorrhea. It is highly transmittable and needs urgent treatment.

Since it is caused by a bacteria an antibiotic is normally curative. However, due to the escalation of antibiotic resistance, the choice of different antibiotics has narrowed in the past years. Currently the most success is seen with the substance Azithromycin.

I will write it down for you in the medication/treatment recommendation list. Nevertheless you should see your general practitioner in the morning to get tested in order to come to a definitive diagnose. Most likely you will also need a prescription from your general practitioner to be able to get your antibiotic.

Please be very careful after touching your intimate body parts. Wash and disinfect your hands! You’re very contagious at the moment and must be careful not to infect anyone else because this bacteria can also cause other very nasty infections.

I wish you a speedy recovery!


The Probable causes:

infection after unprotected sex.

Investigations to be done:

Bacteria culture at local GP.

Differential diagnosis:

Inflammation of the urethra.

Probable diagnosis:

Gonorrhea

Treatment plan:

Azithromycin
To be prescribed by a local general practitioner.
If no GP is available and the medication is freely accessible, the pharmacist has to determine the dose and inform about contraindications and side-effects.

Preventive measures:

Protected/safe sex at all times.

Regarding follow up:

Report back at day 5 of the antibiotic treatment.
