    Well noted.wat r the symptoms of a urinary track infection?

    • Greg February 27, 2019 at 4:08 pm

      Depending on the causative agent, they are

      • A strong, persistent urge to urinate
      • A burning sensation when urinating
      • Passing frequent, small amounts of urine
      • Urine that appears cloudy
      • Urine that appears red, bright pink or cola-colored — a sign of blood in the urine
      • Strong-smelling urine
      • Pelvic pain, in women — especially in the center of the pelvis and around the area of the pubic bone
      • Yogurt like vaginal discharge
      • Itchiness

    Hi.

    Kindly address also throat and nasal infections which cause a strong horrible smell to come from mouth and nose because I believe it is also quite common. The smell is noticed by others even when one sneezes.

    Others can smell it but the person most likely won’t notice. It also comes with lumps of mucus yellow in colour and keeps reccuring even after a dose of antibiotics.

    Thanks

      That is a perfect example of bacteria (in the nose, streptococcus Aureus) overgrowth. If this happened after rounds or antibiotics, Probiotics is the way to go and can help.

    I had unprotected sex with my new boyfriend and he became sick and was diagnosed with urethral gram and is on treatment but with me there is no sign of sickness , am totally fine but he blames me for infecting him, could that be possible? And if it is , is there a need for me to worry or go and get some tests maybe for an STD to b sure if am totally fine? Please help.

      If he is infected and you had unprotected sex, then you should worry and you should get tested. You can see a doctor and explain the situation and he will either give you a preventive (prophylactic) dose of medicine and or get you tested.

      Now, urethrogram is not a diagnosis. It is a procedure name.

      See a doctor

    What about genital warts?Some what small painless blisters concentrated in the labia of the vagina? What is it?no antibiotics have worked so far.

      Thank you Kiran for your comment.
      I would be very careful calling them a medical diagnostic name like genital warts. Genital warts is caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a sexually transmitted virus that is directly connected to cervical cancer.

      I would recommend you see a doctor to have this diagnosed. Please note that in some cases, it could be skin tags, especially if you are overweight and dealing with insulin resistance. See this article

    I have a problem…my discharge is creamish. I feel I have minor cramps on lower abdomen. Went to a gynaecologist and was told was bacterial vaginosis. I was on antibiotics but I feel its back again. I can’t be pregnant. Please help.
