URETHRA

Hi I'm from Macedonia(and I am very sorry if I did some mistake in writing)I have 17 years.Last year i had redness on my penis-glans also a itchiness(I wasan't sexual active) and I was afraid to go in a hospital,so six months later I get more redness(it wasn't paintful when I was urinating) I want to hospital and they made a microbilogy test (bras/bris in macedonian) from urethra.My results were- urinoculture sterile but on urethra bres test I had a bacteria Staphilocoocus aureus.My doctor gave me AMOXICILIN for 10 days(2 drug on day 1000 mg---on 12 hours for one drug) and ointmentGENTAMICINUM/GENTAMICIN OR GARAMICIN but nothing was better.Then I made another test and on results I had the same bacteria but only the drug CLINDAMYCIN was 3 on the antibiogram, so I drinked 2 package box.sometimes when I went to the toilet I found a secret/matter looks like a snot with yellow-white color.The redness begun to lose and i have only a little bit. But after week later when I went in toilet I felt strong pain when urinating.When I went in a hospital I made a urinoculture( the result was E.coli 250.000 multiresistent)in the urine test I had a protein on urine and erithrocytes and blood test when I had highly stratum of leukocytes.It was confirmed thet I have UTI and i drinked again AMOXICILIN for 10 days(2 drug on day 1000 mg---on 12 hours for one drug).Some time leter I made a lot of rest-urinoculture and bres/bris from my urethra--I had sometimes E.coli 75.000 sometimes 25 000) and lastly I cleared E.coly from my bladder but i had the rest in urethra so I had again the redness on my glans (glands).And from 1 year I am trying to destroy the bacteria but I can't.I make hygiene every day and I am bathing with dense tea of camomile and nothing helps I beg YOU for advice.

It sounds as though you initially developed an infection beneath your foreskin that is associated with not pulling the foreskin back each day and washing the area with soap and water. This may be associated with diabetes (high blood sugar) which is something that you should have evaluated. Diabetes can also increase your chances of getting a urine infection.
The way you collect your urine can affect the results. You should do a "clean catch, midstream" sample. This means that you should pull back the foreskin so that the head of you penis is exposed and then you should start urinating into the toilette bowl. After you pass a half a cup of urine, then start collecting some urine into the sterile jar from the lab. This will give you the most accurate collection without taking the urine from you with a needle or catheter.
Bacteria in numbers less than 100,000 on a single sample collected in this manner, especially with a lack of symptoms, are unlikely to represent a true urine infection. Repeated urine cultures with low colony counts of the same bacteria increase the likelihood that you truly do have a urine infection.
At this time, if you persist in having evidence of a urine infection, you need at least a renal and bladder ultrasound and possible, workup for diabetes and some might see the need for a look inside your bladder (cystoscopy).
I would suggest that you see a specialist in urinary problems (urologist).

The third line of the Vattikuti disclaimer is wrong and should read: "Please consult your physician for diagnostic and treatment options pertaining to your specific medical  condition."

I can pull my foreskin back each day and i didn't wash my area with soup,only with water and chamomile(since infection). I did a renal and bladder ultrasound and everything was normal (only a tenuous dilatation of beginning part of uhreter)I did a test for diabetes and also was noramal.Also I went to urologist and he said me that I have small infection on my glans (glands).But I ASK YOU HOW CAN I DESTROY THE BACTERIA FROM MY URETHRA
