Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms you are having are likely to be a generalized viral infection. Renal infections and renal calculi also need to be ruled out after a urine test and ultrasound.
Right now you can start with acetaminophen round the clock to take care of your symptoms. You can take a urine alkalinizing agent like disodium hydrogen citrate
You would also need a course of antibiotics like ciprofloxacin. However, it would be best if we get a urine culture and sensitivity done in order to identify the bacterium and know which antibiotic it is susceptible to.
Since these are prescription drugs, I would suggest you see your physician for the same. With this treatment, I think you should be good in about 1 week.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

That would account for the large bumps under my skin? Ive also have had REALLY bad dizziness and headaches and even nosebleeds. Would a kidney infection account for all of that, i had them before and the pain is fimilar but the rest isnt.

Thanks for writing again.
The dizziness and headaches can be due to a generalized viral infection or electrolyte imbalances.
The large bumps under your skin need to be examined directly for a proper diagnosis. It would be helpful if you could upload a close picture of the lesions in the box provided to upload reports.
Hope my answer is helpful.
