Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

This could most probably be a urinary tract infection. The diagnosis for which is made with the help of a urine analysis and a urine culture.

I also hope the antibiotics you are using to treat your infection (if present), have been prescribed by a doctor, and also after checking the sensitivity it has to the infection you are suffering from.

UTIs are usually treated by antibiotic coverage, which is the main treatment. This could also be treated with medication for urinary tract specific pain along with a potassium chloride based solution, which will help relieve you of your symptoms.

In the meantime, have plenty of water and cranberry juice which will both contribute to a certain extent.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
