Hello, Welcome to HCm, I am Dr. Das.

Look, your friend is suffering from urinary tract infection.

A broad sp[spectrum antibiotic like ciprofloxacin is enough for this.

An alkalizing agent may also be helpful in this situation.

hello tazim,
according to your friend report he has urinary tract infection and because of acidic reaction may be he is feeling burning sensation. YOU should go for ultrasound also to know about infection and swelling in kidneys .You can use ofloxacin plus cefixime combination for 10 days with sodium citrate liquid for 10 days.
