Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to a urinary tract infection. I suggest to do a urine test to confirm the diagnosis. Meanwhile,I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. I also suggest to drink liquids and especially cranberry juice.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi
