I've been suffering with burning and itching with urination and cannot figure out what the problem is. I've been treated for a UTI with antibiotics and a medication that turns your urion blue, but it did not help. my symptoms are, when i urniate there is a burn then a real bad itch that occurs. what can be the problem?
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.
