What causes burning urination?

I had some burning with urination, went to urgent care clinic. They said that I had some ecological in my urine and started me on Nitrofurantoin mono, 100 mg twice a day. I finish my last dose tonight, but still have some discomfort that is the same as the beginning. It isn t extremely painful, just a discomforting.

Hello, my name is Dr.Dorina Gurabardhi. I understand your concern.
Some advices that I can give to you are :
-One of the first things to do when you have a urinary tract infection is drink plenty of water.
-Load Up on Vitamin C for a Healthy Urinary Tract.
-Cut Bladder Irritants From Your Diet. Focus on healthy foods, such as high-fiber carbohydrates,
-Consider Herbal Remedies such as bearberry leafs
-Wear loose cotton clothing and underwear
-Wipe yourself clean from front to back
-Choose only fragrance-free personal hygiene products.
-Applying a heating pad can help soothe the area. Keep the heat setting low, don’t apply it directly to the skin, and limit your use to 15 minutes at a time to avoid burns.
Hope my answer was helpful, if you have any other questions I'll be glad to help, thanks!
