burning in urethra tip.
May 29, 2012

For the last 10 months, i have this burning in urethra in spite of 3 courses of antibiotics. Can you please advise about any medicine for this? Tests for HIV are negative but feverishness continues. Do you advise retesting? -126

Response from Dr. McGowan

There are a couple of possibilities:

1) you may have herpes (HSV) infection, which wouold not be cured by antibiotics.

2) You may have a sexually tranmitted infection, such as chlamydia, in which your partner(s) and you are not coordinating treatment so that you are getting re-infected.

3) You may have a kidney stone which is trying to pass...is there any microscopic blood in the urine?

Discuss above with your doc.

Best, Joe
