Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It can occur due to gonorrhea. It is highly transmittable and needs urgent treatment. As it is caused by bacteria, it is cured by taking antibiotics. Due to the escalation of antibiotic resistance, the choice of different antibiotics has been narrowed over these years. Currently, Azithromycin helps to treat this condition. You need to consult a general practitioner to do tests to have a definitive diagnosis. Be very careful while touching the intimate body parts. Wash and disinfect your hands frequently. You are contagious at this moment and do not infect anyone else as the bacteria cause very nasty infections.


The Probable causes:

You have an infection after unprotected sex.

Investigations to be done:

You need to do bacteria culture at the local general practitioner.

Differential diagnosis:

You can have inflammation of the urethra.

Treatment plan:

You can take Azithromycin and take it under the guidance of a general practitioner.

Preventive measures:

Have a protected or safe sex every time.

Regarding follow up:

Revert after five days of taking antibiotic treatment.
