Is painful urination a symptom of urinary tract infection?

a friend of mine has taken antibiotics for the last month to month and a half and is now having severe issues with urination. extreme pain when urinating and there seems to be a scale like skin issues in the same area. can this be a horrible case of yeast infection due to extended period of time taking those antibiotics

this is due to acidic nature of urine..
which can be solved by adding urinary alkaliser to your presciption..
and do not forget to drink plenty of water...
