Brief Answer:
simple test and proper treatment for cure.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

It is probably a urinary tract infection and cranberry juice gives it symptomatic relief. It is not sufficient treatment as one has to confirm diagnosis and detect the organism responsible. It may be bacterial or with the itching and also vaginal discharge, it may be fungal. The definitive treatment is to be decided after identifying the organism by a urine culture and sensitivity.
Untreated or inadequately treated urinary infection can lead to kidney infection or a systemic infection. If is recurrent or chronic it may lead to kidney failure. So it is better to do this simple test and treat appropriately. Also check your blood sugar to know whether you have diabetes which increases the incidence and severity of urinary and genital infections.
If you have further queries, I am ready to answer them.
Take care
