    Non-Specific Urethritis Thailand

    Non-Specific Urethritis in Thailand

    Urethritis means inflammation of the urethra, the tube where urine passes. This inflammation can be caused by different factors; hence it is called non-specific urethritis.
    The inflammation does not necessarily mean that there is an underlying infection. If the urethra has been irritated due to physical means, it can damage the lining and may cause some discharge. Similarly, being exposed to strong substances can inflame the urethra.

    On the other hand, there are also several types of infection that can cause the inflammation. It is classified into two categories, mainly to distinguish the approach for the treatment procedure. The first category is gonococcal urethritis which is caused by gonorrheal infection. The second category being non-gonoccocal urethritis which is often cause by chlamydial infection. Others may come from ureaplasma or mycoplasma. While in rare cases, herpes can be involved. For both gonococcal and non-gonoccocal urethritis, the inflammation usually subsides after a couple of days, but the infections causing it should be treated accordingly.

    NSU is characterized by painful urination which may include genital discharge.
    As said earlier, the treatment depends on the cause so it is best to identify first if you have any of these infections before taking medications. These are the most common prescription drugs for non-specific urethritis since most cases are caused by gonorrhea and chlamydia, both of which can be treated using these drugs.

    Azithromycin (Azith, Zithromax) 1 g orally in a single dose

    Doxycycline (Vibramycin) 100 mg orally twice a day for 7 days

    Ofloxacin (Tarivid, Floxin) 300 mg orally twice a day for 7 days

    However, in cases where in there in no evident infection, antibiotic treatment is unnecessary.
