I have been suffering for over a year. I had a 1 time sexual encounter and was treated with a huge dosage of antibiotics (Rocephin and Zithromax) Also took months of other antibiotics as urologist did not know what they were treating, but just prescribing.

Broke out in an itch that felt like ants were under my skin for about 4 weeks. Then urethral pain, anal itch for the last year.

was tested negative:
Gonorrhea , Chlamydia,HIV, Syphilis,HEP ABC. Herpes I even had a urine HPV (dont know the credibility for this test)

Could all this be Candida?

Been to over 10 doctors with no clue, even to an infectious disease expect.. Did stool test, Gono, syphilis, herpes, hpv etc.. even did MRI/cat scan of my pelvis area.This is so frustrating, urethra burns after ejaculation and rectum feels as if something is crawling inside..

  • Herpes blood tests are not always accurate; you may want to revisit that blood work again. Sounds close to it. There are a lot of false negatives.

  • So much antibiotic use could definitely open the door for Candida. I would consider Candidiasis, and don't overlook the possibility of parasites. From my experience, both are to be taken seriously.

  • Did you ever get anywhere with this? I have exactly what you did. I am on the candida path of thinking too.Hi,I've had the same problem going on for 1 year. No discharge from urethra,but lesions or ulcers can be seen inside urethra meatus. Have been to many doctors and urologists, but useless. Some think it's herpes and presriped me acyclovir, some said it's NGU and gave me doxycilline. One gave me cipro and ceftirazone injection, but problem persist.if anyone found a solution please let me know, i'll fly to see you in real person to say thank you.Koly

  • I don't like talking about personal stuff but the internet helped me so much that I wanted to contribute in hopes of helping someone else. I took Antibiotics for two weeks (Erythromycin 250mg) Bumm got nasty itchy like never before in my life. A rash around anus to scrotum. After two weeks of doing nothing I had to consult my wife. She got some Destin (zink oxide) and preparation-H. The rash went away fast but the itch around anus persisted. I started to research. Bought some probiotics (1-2 per day). Started talking baths in epsom salt baths (3 cups in bath, 2-3 baths per week). Stopped with Zink oxcide and continued the preparation-H. Both creams only gave relief so I could function for the day, they never cured anything. I had to go on a 10 day vacation and this slowed down the healing. I relapse once by taking a wod of toilet paper and "went at it". This felt so good, but paid I paid for it the next couple of days. This also brought on bleeding which scared the ***l out of me. Next I started grating two cloves of garlic into a large glass of water once a day. Stopped the preparation-H and started using Lotrimin. My daily diet: 1-3 hard boiled eggs, 1-2 yogurts. Very raw red meat, Fruits and vegetables. I drink coffee in the morning and water throughout the day. I cut salt as much as possible out of my diet. I have a regular BM once per morning and this diet made the BM perfect for me. I have a fast metabolism and am in the gym 5 days a week. This took 5 months to go away. I am going to stay on probiotics for the rest of the year and I still drink garlic water 1-2 times a week as I have grown a liking for it. I have no idea what I had, just that it wreaked havoc on my life. The only thing else I do is meditate to focus my mind on the healing. So thankful for the internet and all the wonderful posters who helped me with research.

I read about MOXYFLOXACIN, i have used this for 2 weeks, no change. Found Dr. Toth on the internet, went to him 5 hours drive to new York. This useless man is full of **** and he almost killed me. He said it was chronic prostatis and he needed to inject my prostate in order to cure me. I was desperate for cure as this thing has been ruining my life including my marriage for over 2 years now. He took urine, urethral swab and DRE. 2 weeks later he called me and said he found chlamydia in the urethral swab. I was skeptical, because when he did the DRE and pressed had on my prostate, some white blood cells came out which he too sample and tested. But he didn't find infection in the white blood cells which i expected he would but he said he did in the urethral swab.Anyways, 1 week later went back to New York for the therapy, first day he shot me with a cocktail of antibiotics into my prostate, next day he shot another cocktail into my seminal vesicle and this almost stopped my heart and the pain was so intense that blood was concentrated on the pain area, i was in pain for about an hour and almost lost my breath.This man is a liar and never found anything infection in his test, he just wanted to treat me for money. His method id very aggressive and I will advise everyone who wishes to listen to avoid this man or anyone who performs this kind of treatment. They don't know what the infection is, they just treat you with antibiotics for the money.Anyways i knew i was not going to die this way. 2 weeks after the therapy i still have the symptoms.. I have decided to live with it.. Please share any findings you may have..
