Unknown STD?'s : Treatment of urethritis with random antibiotics is only effective if a specific bacterial agent is responsible. There are viral causes for urethritis as well as bacterial, so ask for a referral to an infectious disease specialist for appropriate treatment.

Yes: The presence of blood in the urine, stools, painful urination or painful bowel movements could be due to involvement of these organs with endometriosis but other conditions such ass ic, other tumors of the bladder or bowel need to be excluded. Inflammatory bowel diseases like crohn's/colitis needs to be excluded.

A 26-year-old female asked:

My son just recently developed a rash all over his body. He just finished antibiotics for strep throat two days ago. Is this normal?

Sounds like allergy: It sounds like your son may have developed an allergy to the antibiotic. You should go back to the doctor to confirm this. Although antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec will help with itching, symptoms like wheezing, difficulty breathing, swallowing trouble or swelling in the face or mouth are very concerning and should be addressed by a doctor right away.

A 24-year-old female asked:

I have visible blood in my urine and went to hospital and they said I had a UTI infection but my left kidney is in bad pain, is this from a uti?

Dr. PHILLIP KIM

May or may not: Gross blood in the urine with flank pain until proven otherwise can be a sign of kidney stones. Uti typically starts from the bladder and if left untreated can potentially travel to to the kidneys with serious consequences. Follow where the pain the starts. Stone starts from the back vs UTI from the bladder.
