Thanks for asking.

I think you are having urinary tract infection.You need to go for the urine complete examination checking for the pus cells and the potential bugs in the urine.

Also the urine culture is needed to see which antibiotics will be useful for you to cure that infection.

In uncomplicated cases, urinary tract infections are easily treated with a short course of antibiotics, although resistance to many of the antibiotics used to treat this condition is increasing. In complicated cases, longer course or intravenous antibiotics may be needed, and if symptoms have not improved in two or three days, further diagnostic testing is needed.
