Doctor, my name is Isaac from Ghana. I have been experiencing burning sensation on my body for almost two years now. I tested positive for syphilis. I was given benzathine penicillin injection for weeks but I still react to syphillis.
Secondly, I have been experiencing abdominal pains and my urine also split into two when peeing. When I took a scan they said I have prostatitis. Please can you help me with any herbal medication. I am 30 years old.
