Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Redness around my penis


Redness and itchiness
Redness and itchiness  

So, I met this girl through  online dating site, and we had sex when we met
I also had sex with my gf in the same week. And I got really sick on the following weekend. I went to my doctor and got checked for chlamydia, gonorrhea and HIV. Every test came negative. A week later I felt pain while urinating. I saw blood In my urine too. So, I went again to the same doctor and told him about blood in urine. So he took urine sample and he told me to get ultrasound done for my bladder( which I'm going to get done tomorrow). He also prescribed me an anitibiotic called ciproflaxin. But I still have itchiness on my penis and there's also redness around my foreskin. I'm scared. Please help and tell me what's wrong with me. I've also attached a pic showing redness.


Hi Ganjin,

There's a flaw in what you did; did you wait 3-4 weeks after unprotected intercourse in getting those STI tests? If not, then those tests results were pointless because you didn't wait long enough for antibodies to appear in your system to even show up on a STI panel. So you would have to go back in 3-4 weeks and get tested again to be absolutely positive. Cipro is used for bacterial infections, so if it works then you know what you have is a bacterial infection at most. It could be worse than that and be viral and the medicine not work at all, but I'm just telling you what all "could" happen. Keep me apprised as to what your ultrasound results reveal and best of luck.
