Hello - thanks for asking your question.

There are several causes for burning and itchiness when urinating.  The first is a urinary tract infection (which you have been treated for).

Another cause would be pyelonephritis (an uncommon presentation), or urethritis (either chlamydial or gonococcal urethritis).  Trichomonas vaginalis, Candida albicans, and Herpes simplex virus can also cause urethritis.

If you are female, vaginitis would be a consideration, if you are a male, prostatitis would also be considered.

I strongly suggest followup with your personal physician for further evalation.

I stress that this answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - please see your personal physician for further evaluation of your individual case.

Thanks,
Kevin, M.D.
