Have soreness in vagina. Had UTI test and its positive for leukocytes. What can it be?

Hi, I had symptoms of a UTI (frequency, urgency, feeling like a drop of urination was left in my urethra before and after urinating), but I had a lot of urine rather than scanty urine when I would go. However, I also have a symptom that I've not experienced with a UTI before, which is soreness in my vagina--largely in my labia. It feels very dry and a dull soreness. It is not itchy. Is this a normal symptom from the irritation from the UTI, or do I have something else? I took a home UTI test and it was positive for leukocytes, but I did not get an official test at the doctor's office. Help!

Welcome to HCM,
From your history it seems that along with urinary tract infection you might be having Bacterial vaginosis giving rise to these problem.
Consult gynaec and get examined.
She may go for vaginal swab examination as well.
Take plenty of water.
Keep local hygiene clean and dry.
ok and bye.
