Hello ma'am and welcome.

As you may not be able to approach a medical centre I can only help you with home remedies, and they are:

+Drink plenty of water
+Add 1 tbsp of baking soda in a glass of water and have at least 3-4 times a day
+Drink cranberry juice as tolerate
+Avoid sexual contact in all forms
+Make sure you take extra care of your personal hygiene
+Sitz bath in epsom salt 2-3 times a day

Antibiotic coverage is required and so I would urge you to visit a doctors clinic. Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
