Viral infection, burning pain on urination. Had taken treatment for eye infection. What could be the underlying cause of series of infections?

I m an 18 year old female. Last week (Thursday) a piece of dirt became stuck in my eye (I work as a gardener during the summers) and I couldn t get it out. I managed to get it out a few hours later, but my eye still hurt and it still felt like there was something stuck in there. I went to my doctor and was told that my cornea was scratched and I had an infection in my eye. I was given eye drops and my eye has felt much better since then. However, this weekend I became sick. I felt very achy, tired, lethargic, and had no appetite . I also had difficulty breathing and a fever . I went to see my doctor yesterday and was told that I had a viral infection.. I was advised to take time off of work, relax, drink lots of fluids, and manage the fever. Today I feel significantly better and was planning on returning to work tomorrow.. but I ve been experiencing burning while I urinate (as well as foul-smelling urine ) and suspect that I have a UTI . Is it just a coincidence that I ve contracted so many infections recently? Or might there be an underlying reason why?

It is a good habit of doing gardening in summer..! But nothing will happen to ur eyes with that small amount of dirt.. It ll be relived by normal eye drops like clearine or refresh gel drops.. And the viral fever which u got is no where related with ur eye problems..
The burning micturation which u r suffering is might be due some side affects of drugs of viral fever..or else most people suffer burning urination when they take less amount of water and spending more time in hot sun..

So.. Worry not about ur health...drink plenty of water and have vitamin.c rich fruits and finally start using safety glasses for. Ur eyes while working in garden....
Thank you
