Brief Answer:
You have UTI

Detailed Answer:


Thanks for query.

Burning urination that you have is mostly due to UTI secondary to enlarged prostate.

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.

1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis
3) Serum PSA.
4) Uroflowmetry.

Take broad-spectrum antibiotics like Cefixime along with urinary antiseptics like Nitrofurantoin and urine alkaliser 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 urine dilute, this will help to control dysuria.

Hope I have answered your query.
