Hi. I am a male in my thirties and have been struggling with an inflamed urethra for 10 weeks. I am a long term heterosexual relationship and the symptoms seemed to come out of the blue. The only definite symptom is a red and inflamed tip of my penis which has been constant for the 10 weeks and I have tested negative for clamydia, gonnerhea, a uti and nsu as well as positive for a uti and nsu over the 10 weeks. The latest test last week showed no uti but showed ten wbc from a penis swab so obviously still inflammation present. It hurts after masturbating and urinating but is only red and sore and the rest of the time I barely notice it. Over this time I have taken azithromizing one dose, metronidizole one dose, nitrofuaretoin low dose for 5 days, oxytetracycline 7 days and have just been given ofloxacin 7 days and aciclover 5 days at same time to cover hsv a uti and prostatis.
Any comments on my treatment as I feel like the doctors could just be throwing antibiotics at me?
Would could it be? Yeast? Mycoplasma? Uti? Prostatis? Herpes?
Could I be having a first hsv outbreak about 10 years after I may have unknowingly caught it?
Can I drink alcohol while on ofloxacin if doc tells me to take it for 4 weeks instead of one week?
What next treatment options do I have?
Would be extremely grateful for advice from a medical professional..
