Doctor :   You clearly have developed Proctatitis. The underlying cause for which is infection with Enterococcus Faecalis. You will need a course of antibiotics. Usually when a semen culture is done and a bacterium is isolated, several anitibiotics are tested to determine if they will adequately treat the infection. This is the best method to determine the antibiotics to use to treat this condition. Antibiotics such as Vancomycin and Nitrofurantoin have been found to be effective in treating E. faecalis infections. Both medications are only available with a prescription from a physician. Vancomycin must be administered via the intravenous route.
