What's the next step


Q: My son is working on a cruise ship off singapore and started having buring on urination. He went to see a doctor on the ship who took a urine sample and stated he does not have a UTI and it is possible that he has STD such as gonorrhea.he has been sexually active so there is that possibility. He was given Doxycline 100 mg for 9 days which he finished yesterday. He thought he was getting better but the burning has returned when urinating and he has burning pain in his penis when he's lying down at night. He went back to the doctor today. The doctor said there was know sign of infection and he told him that he gave him the strongest antibiotic he had and sent him on his way. Only to come back if it gets a lot worse We're not sure how to advise our son.
