Question: Burning sensation in the pennis
|vilas - Fri Jul 16, 2010 12:31 am||
For the last 5 to 6 weeks I have been feeling burning sensation on my Pennis as well as frequent pain in my testicle.
I consulted a urologist first and he put me on doxycycline and since I was not getting better, he then put me on Cipro but still I was not feeling better.
Ultra sound scans were done on my testicle as well as kidney and everything was fine. I also had Specimen taken from my pennis tested for STDs, it cameout negative.
I decided to consult my regular physician and he has sent my urine sample for culturing today. He has prescribed azithromycin and I am going to start the course from today. I am really worried about what exactly is going on...
Any advice would be deeply appreciated.
