No: Early recognition and proper rx of this problem with prescription meds solves many problems.Although the gc symptoms may be so noticable that few can overlook them, there are often more than one std present at a time & all need to be recognized & eliminated.This reduces spread and the life altering complications(ie infertility) involved.Since rx for one std may not eliminate all, get evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Be careful please: As of 2010 injectable Ceftriaxone appears to be one of the few effective antibiotics. Because of increasing rates of antibiotic resistance local susceptibility patterns need to be taken into account when deciding on treatment.

No - different area: Gonorrhea in men usually causes a urethritis - which is an infection of the urethra, which is 'inside' the penis - not on the outside. If you are worried about an external dermatitis, it must be something else other than gonorrhea. It could be 'fungus' since I notice you've got 'jock itch' listed above. I suggest you see an ID doc- those doctors specialize in this kind of thing. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

French vs Treatment: This archaic term has been around for years befor we understood what germs were about.
