Thanks for your query ,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have UTI and have taken Bactrim for couple of days but still has burning urination .

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefixime along with urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkalizer thrice daily .Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.

Ensure to drink more water .To keep your urine dilute This will help to control dysuria.

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests and final diagnosis.
