Brief Answer:
Injured the urethra

Detailed Answer:

i have seen many patients in clinic who complain this after treatment. Because of earlier yeast infection and itch there is a heavy scratching leading to reupture of mucosa or injury to urethral epithelium. Also the treatment leads to dryness of the areas causing more burning.
I suggest sitz baths with plain cold water. I suggest good vaginal moisturizer to be applied which can balance pH. This would take care in couple of days.
