Hello doctor,

I am a 27-year-old male, and I used to have a recurrent UTI. For the past two months, my urethra is constantly itching. I did a kidney function test, and my uric acid was high. My urine culture test shows bacterial culture. I was prescribed antibiotics and antifungals, but nothing improved. Then we did a genital swab, and the reports showed staphylococcus infection. I am taking antibiotics for a week, but it is not improving. I am not diabetic.

Kindly help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your description states that you have an infection that does not respond to antibiotics or antifungals. The reason is either the infection is in the prostate, or a proper antibiotic is not given. Antibiotics should be prescribed according to the organism's sensitivity, which is mentioned in the laboratory report.

For prostate infection, we need to do a semen culture.

I suggest you do a semen culture and attach the reports for further management.

Kind regards.
