 nitin - Thu May 28, 2009 1:53 am

i am nitin(male,25 years)Suffering from pain & inflammation in urethra at tip of penis. this pain increases & become worse after ejaculation semen. The Doctor did a VDRL test, Urine examination & urine culture & sensitivity test. VDRL comes non-reactive, 8-10 pus cells & 3-4 epithelial cells in urine, urine culture reported as E.COLI & sensitivity determines norfloxcin(Resistant), cefixime(++), augmentin(++), amikacin(+++), Netlimycin (+++).Doctor given me (cefixime(200mg)+augmentin(625 mg) & Citralka liquid for seven days but I feel no relief. Then amikacin inj.(500 mg) 2 times a day is given for 5 days . But it increases the pain & inflammation & I stopped it after 3 days. Doctor again done all tests after one month . Pus cells become 6-8. Culture & sensitivity remains same as it is. But no relief in pain Please help me I want to know what disease I have & remedy for it. Because if I have an E.coli infection, it can be cured by above antibiotics but they had no effect

User avatar Hello,Sometimes invitro results do not give the desired results and your doctor may have to change the antibiotic.
