Burn at the tip of my penis what else can it be and is it serious? Had chlamydia three weeks ago been on three treatments did every test and came back negative what other possibilities are these
Yeast? Psych?: Already answered once. As discussed there, for sure it isn't chlamydia. Probably no STD at all. If I correctly recall, in your other question you said you tested negative for WBC in your urethra or urine, so probably no infection. Possibly yeast, esp if uncircumcised. Often this problem is psychological. Almost certainly not serious; you should resume sex with your regular partner if you have one. ...Read more
7-10 days: The standard treatments clear the infection in 1-2 days, but symptoms take longer to clear up. Discharge or painful urination usuallly start improving within 2 days, can take 7-10 days to be gone entirely. If things aren't clearing up this soon, return to your doctor to be rechecked. Don't resume sex until at least 7 days have passed, all symptoms are gone, and your partner(s) have been treated. ...Read more
Gonorrhea and chlamydia came back, I am now wondering if the antibiotic treatments have failed or if I have something else?
Reinfection: The most common reason a std returns is because someone re-infected you. Your same partner or a new partner. If you have gonorrhea and chlamydia, all of your partner(s) needs to complete antibiotics too. There are some cases of antibiotic resistant gonorrhea, but those aren't widespread yet. Make sure that on your retreatment, both you and your partner(s) complete entire antibiotic therapy! ...Read more

Only antibiotics will clear chlamydia; there are no other treatments. ...Read more

Here are some...: Based on what described, the concerned spots are not STD-related but some commonly expected discolored skin macules which carry no clinical significance and require no need for active care, as long as being stable in their size with no elevation or bleeding or hurt.

I had unprotected sex & gave head to guy with Chlamydia, day before I went on antibiotics I had a deep makeout with another. Did I give him chlamydia too? I'm worried :(
Well....: Luckily chlamydia trachomatis isn't transmitted well to the throat like gonorrhea often is thru unprotected oral sex. You probably didn't, but if this is someone you care about or even just like and respect, it would be wise to be honest. Also, probably time to use condoms more regularly even for head as chlamydia can cause you permanent fertility issues and pain. ...Read more
This is my 7th day after taking azithromycin for chlamydia and I recieved head. Will I be at risk of gettin reinfected?

Oral sex is lower risk sex, low is not no. ...Read more

Probably not: It is not possible to tell if they have chlamydia from looking at them; however, oral sex is a relatively low risk activity for contracting any std other than herpes (oral sex is high risk for contracting herpes if either person has the virus). Safer sex would involve using a condom or dental dam as a barrier for even oral sex. ...Read more

See the doctor: Make sure you took all of your Azithromycin as directed.

Been having bleach spots on my penis and burning when I squeeze my head. Got tested for chlamydia and syphilis negative. Also, really smelly feces.
Need more tests.: There are other infections that need to be looked for to explain the burning. Also, fragrances in anything, harsh soaps, can irritate the opening of the urethra & cause burning, as can over-scrubbing. Bleach spots may not be related. See doc again. Use products for sensitive skin (and your partner needs to, too). No fragrances, no aerosols, no alcohol-based products, no rough scrubbing, hot H20 ...Read more
