My Husband Has Epididymitis Has He Been Cheating
My fiancé just found out he has gonhorehea he has been 100% faithful and swears he has never cheated. He had a uti can that be mistaken for gonhorehea?
The only answer as: To faithfulness, your partner must give. Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease. The herpes simplex virus(hsv) has two forms, hsv1 usually affecting mouth and lips(cold sores) but can be spread from mouth to genitals in oral sex, and hsv2 which most often is the cause of genital herpes but can be spread by secretions from the mouth or genitals. Partners should both be tested & treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My partner has had toe fungus since he was 8yrs old and he is 23 now. He has tried everything and nothing has worked. Still is trying. What can he do?
Confirm fungus.: The first thing he should do is see a doctor and have a sample of his nail sent for pathology to confirm it is indeed a fungus. It could be something else that looks like a fungal nail. Fungal nail infections are not common in young children. If it is confirmed to be a fungus then laser therapy is a viable option. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Gross hematuria: There are multiple causes of this. It could range from the bladder infectio to a bladder cancer. Needs urinalysis, urine culture and cystoscopy. Anal itch probably not related to it and needs to be checked to find the cause such as hemorrhoids, infection, irritation from toilet paper, gi problems, parasites etc. I hope this helps.

I've been with my partner for just over 12years, last year he was told he has HIV, he takes no meds, his cd count is 500+ how long has he had HIV?
It could be years: There's no way to know duration of your partner's HIV infection from this information. With near normal CD4 count, it's likely he has had it less than 5 years, but some people maintain their CD4 levels for 10+ years. It is amazing and disconcerting he hasn't told you about his HIV for over a year, and you probably are at very high risk yourself. Get tested ASAP and start using condoms with him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Difficult problem: You should have antibiotic treatments (Cipro or Bactrim) twice daily for a month. If you have done this a couple of times already, then it may be time to see a urologist. Antibiotics do not penetrate very well "down there," and so the longer course of treatment is necessary. ...Read more

Try...: Real "mild" epididymitis is uncommon though commonly used for men with slight tenderness ; firmness at the head of epididymis. Yet, it has still been empirically treated like its acute form with: - Doxycycline 100 mg orally twice daily x 7 days or Azithromycin 1gm orally once, like a ng-urethritis. So, result is poor. But, for better rx, one need detailed hx ; specific physicals to define. ...Read more
