For my sister in the age of 14, few steroids injected to suppress the growth of an abscess which was grown due to herpes viral infection in the upper lip below nose. The abscess growth stopped and we satisfied about the medication. Now she is 30, but her personnel body growth is getting reduced day by day. She is around 40 kg now. We have a doubt, is there any side effect happened because of the steroid injected.

Hi, Steroids given by systemic route play a role in body stunting,but once the full body size is achieved or height is achieved,then body stunting doesn't occur and steroid leads to increase in weight gain and does not reduce weight. So if her personal body growth is reducing now after gaining full weight and height, the cause should not be steroid taken at that tender age,and she should have a detailed examination and investigation to find out the cause of the disease. Feel free to ask more ...

Period has been off cycle the past few months, it came after 38 days. Before my period came, I had thicker grey/white discharge than normal with no odor and did not look like cottage cheese. It did not itch. It seemed normal, just more than usual. I then had a normal menses. I decided to start Lo Loestrin birth control on day 3 of my menses. During the last day of my menses (day 4/5) when the blood was lighter/brown, I started having intense itching especially after urinating and wiping. I just assumed it was from using a new type of pad and possibly due to hormonal changes because of the birth control. I also felt like my vagina was more dry than usual. The itching became less intense but I still felt more dry than usual. I had sexual intercourse a few days later and he caused a tear. I then noticed hours later that on my labia minora an ulcer had developed. It basically looks like the same type of canker sore you get in your mouth. My vagina is still quite dry. It burns when I pee and the sore is uncomfortable. I also have a tear at my vaginal opening. I don't think it is herpes. There was no pustules or groups of pustules. There is no scabbing. There are no other ulcers. I have never had herpes before. I have never had a sore like this before. I was fully tested one year ago for all STDs and HIV and came back negative. I'm just not sure what to do. I'm assuming I have to go get tested again just to make sure, but unfortunately I do not have insurance and most free clinics only check for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and HIV. Hoping to get an idea of what I should do. Also, hoping for some differentials.

I am a 24 yr old uncircumcised male. I had sex with a prostitute around 4 months ago.While having sex from the back(vaginal) the condom tore from the top and I had not realized it until I had pulled out ejaculating inside her in the process. After about 20 days after the incident I started having mild urine sensation and light penile pain after urinating( and not during urination). At around 32nd day I had fever ( around 101f), throat pain and urine sensation continuing from before. I went to gp and he said it's a mild UTI and put me on prufloxacin 600mg antibiotic for 3 days and did a urine routine and culture and both showed nothing. Fever and sore throat healed up within 3 days and urine sensation also improved and penile pain went away. But the penile sensation and irritation stayed so i went to a urologist.He did a PSA blood test and urine test which was normal so he put me on 8 days Pruflox course.The urine sensation went away around in 20 days or so. But now also i felt a sort of occasional burning feeling while urinating at tip of penis which travels to the shaft for a minute or 2 and then disappears and the penis opening became very red and itchy after masterbation. I went to a the dermatologist just a week ago.He ordered for std panel, urine test and semen analysis.On examining he didn't find any abnormality as such just a little reddish at the tip of penis.Std test was negative (HIV, Herpes, Chalmydia and syphilis), urine test was negative but semen has 8-10 hpf pus cells.So he gave me 15 days azithromycin 500mg course (twice a day for 3 days then once a day) and alksol syrup twice a day. 1) Am i on the right course of treatment??Do i need to take azithromycin for such a long time as it is known to be very strong and have side effects such as diarrhoea. 2) what is the meaning of pus cells in semen? 3) Are my std panel results conclusive at 4 months?? Pls do reply.!!!!

plz visit sexologist. or cal us ...
