Finished course of antibiotics but still showing some signs of infection

I'm in SE Asia and started having itchy / burning and green stuff coming out... i'm in a small town, so i couldn't get azithromycin... i took doxycycline and ciprofloxacin for 7 days twice a day...yes yes yes, i know the recommendations have changed for gonnorhea ....before anyone replies with that...

my question is this, it's gone away about 95% after 7 days. but there is still some itch and a tiny but noticeable amount of green come out in the morning...nowhere near what it was... does that surely mean i'm still infected? or is the bacteria dead and it's still healing up?

Re: Finished course of antibiotics but still showing some signs of infection

I'm not a doctor and I don't even really know much about this, but I would guess that green discharge means there is still an infection. Go back to your doctor or clinic for more antibiotics.

And you may find cranberry can help to clear the infection a bit more quickly too. It works with antibiotics. It would not be anywhere near enough alone though.
