I'm a male, white 49. Not sexually active. I have a discharge from my penis. Three weeks ago I was bitten by a fire ant. Other wise in good health.?

I'm a male, white 49. Not sexually active. I have a discharge from my penis. Three weeks ago I was bitten by a fire ant. Other wise in good health.?

See a Dr: The fire ant is most likely a " red herring"- that is it probably has nothing to do with anything. With your history it sounds like chronic prostatitis which needs to be diagnosed then treated with the appropriate antibiotic. For the sake of your health see a dr. ...Read more

I have had discharge from my penis, but with no pain.  Urine and blood tests were negative for stds. Took cipro but still have clear discharge?

May be normal: If the "discharge" is associated with sexual excitement, it is likely to be normal. The two common STDs with such symptoms are gonorrhea and chlamydia, both can be tested for by doing nucleic acid tests on urine. ...Read more

Good morning. Why do i keep having white discharge from my penis, its been on since Feb 2014, i've taken augumentin, ciprotab, bactrosc, rifamax 300mg?

Here are some ...: Are you allergy to tetracyclline? If not and never used it, I would make sure you and partner use doxycline 100 mg twice daily x 7 days + 1 gm azithromycin at least empirically once and see. So, both GC and non-GC urethritis can be covered. Of course, if possible, get tested for sure. At times, if not having stinging urination, one may consider if what you see is sex-arousal-related excretion... ...Read more

I have a green discharge from my penis but I'm a virgin and it doesn't hurt or even itches could it be std?

I have a green discharge from my penis but I'm a virgin and it doesn't hurt or even itches could it be std?

Balanitis?: I agree with Dr. Rhoads. If you've had no sex of any kind with another person, including oral, it can't be an STD. Are you circumcised? If uncircumcised, I would guess you might have a bacterial or yeast infection under your foreskin. (The medical term for that is balanitis.) Most important is to see a doctor right away! ...Read more

How do you know?: How do you know it isn't an STD? If you have a discharge, have it checked. Also make sure and tell your girlfriend so that she knows. She may have similar symptoms. Not necessarily STD, but better to be evaluated. ...Read more
