Hi. This is a simple medstud story from Russsia with love.
Male, 24, medical history of mild asthma treated with SABA twice a week.
1 week before: Influvac i/m.
5 days before: cold exposure, unprotected sexual intercourse (female, 24, chronic sinusitis, chronic rinitis), sildenafil (100 mg)
4 days before, early morning: fill ill - strange feeling of my eyes being ill - discomfort while blinking - no conjunctivitis; malaise, t=36,6 (normal); few itchy red spot's on glans penis.
2 days before: spots+itching+37C+mild sore throat (left tonsilla mild enlargement with two 1-mm white deposits on it), signs of tracheitis and rinitis.
today:spots+itching+36,6C+left tonsilla+tracheitis+anxiety.
The questions are:
1. It's my second time infection occur within a week after influvac. No HIV/immunosuppression. Coincidence?
2. Are itching spots just the result of local trauma and nonspecific infection? or
3. Itching spots and the "upper body symptoms" represent the same disease? Which one?
4. Maybe ceftriaxone+azithromycin?
