It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
I had a penil discharges I had a urine c/s the result its e coli and I took the antibiotic after that the results 1-3pus cell and still coming out?
Check for STDs: A discharge from the penis is almost always caused by urethritis, and almost all urethritis is due to STDs, especially at your age. The E. coli could be the cause, but you should also be tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia, and perhaps treated for nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) if those tests are negative. However, rare cases are non STD, e.g. with E. coli causing prostatitis. ...Read more

UTI: You probably have cystitis (bladder infection) that is quite common in women and should clear with the medication you are receiving. Whether the vaginal odor will change depends upon its cause. If this is bacterial vaginosis trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole may not have an effect. You should go and be examined by a gynecologist. Best wishes. ...Read more

E.Coli in urine culture means it is in your bladder? What UTI or diseases can a person get if e.Coli has been diagnosed in urine culture?
Cystitis: A positive urine culture for e coli usually means you have an infection of the lining of the bladder, a cystitis. That is what a "uti" is: a urinary tract infection.

You ICU team of doctors is the most appropriate group to ask this question, specifically the id specialist (if there is one in your institution). ...Read more
Mild burning in anus end from inside, foul smell in gas had e.Coli in urine, no fissure or any stds. Could be due to exercise like squats or lunges?
Not squats: I don't know, but it's definitely not due to the exercises you're doing. When you say you have no stds, I assume that means that you haven't had rectal swabs sent for gonorrhea and chlamydia and you have a negative syphilis test? I would point out that it's unusual for a 24 year old male to have an e. Coli urinary tract infection. I'd want to know why that happened. ...Read more

Travel up urethra: E. Coli species are the most common bowel bacteria and are invariably present on the perineal skin, no matter how well you wipe. They will be present in any urine temporarily trapped behind the labia and get "sucked" up the urethra during terminal muscle contractions at end of voiding. E. Coli around the urethral opening can be pushed up the urethra during sex. Hence advice to urinate after sex. ...Read more

E coli UTI: I wonder if there could be something reintroducing bacteria into your bladder such as a colovescial fistula (abnormal connection between the bowel and bladder) or possibly a urachal cyst which communicates with the bladder. A CT or MRI scan may help to eliminate either of these. Speak with your doctor. I saw a patient with a urachal cyst who presented just like this. ...Read more
