Infectious disease, caused by gonococcus andtransmitted mainly during sexual intercourse - is gonorrhea. In men, the treatment of a disease depends on its type and form. Gonococci primarily affect the genito-urinary tract and its adnexa. That is why the first symptoms of infection are slight burning and itching in the urethra. This feature can be supplemented by the appearance of mucous secretions. Then the inflammation builds up, and after 3-4 days already develops acute urethritis.
Treatment of the disease should begin as soon as possibleearlier, and therefore it is necessary to pay attention in time to the emerging symptoms. Anterior urethritis in acute course causes pain during urination, intense reddening of the external zone of the urethra, soreness and swelling, abundant discharge of purulent contents. Erection may cause pain.
Sometimes gonorrhea in men (treatment of a diseasemust necessarily implement a venereal disease) is characterized by mild symptoms, manifested only in the form of minor discharge and light pain, sometimes not even noticeable to the patient. In this case, the disease already from the very beginning takes on a chronic form. There is also an opposite development of events, when urethritis is very violent. Inflammation is expressed very strongly: the penis is swollen and remains in a semi-stressed state, when it feels, intense pain arises, from the urethra there are abundant discharge, they can be with blood impurities. In addition, the condition worsens as a whole, the temperature rises.
Preparations with an antibiotic content are used inas the main method of therapy. The choice of a particular medication depends on a number of conditions: the nature and prevalence of the disease, the stability of gonococci, the general condition of the patient, the presence of complications, etc. Antibiotics of the penicillin series are often used, they are administered intramuscularly. With individual intolerance to such medications, antibiotics of the tetracycline series are used. Typically, 7-10 days is enough to stop showing symptoms. Gonorrhea in men, whose treatment is quite long, is present in the body until the gonococcus in the secretions disappears completely. It also happens that even if the pathogen is not detected during laboratory diagnosis, the inflammation continues in the genitourinary system. Then it is necessary to make an additional examination and continue the treatment. Only if the gonococcus for a long time in laboratory studies is not found, we can consider the patient cured of gonorrhea.
