Please help! do I have a uti or is it something else?

Hi, a few days ago I started to notice that after going to the bathroom my crotch would feel tender??? dully ache(not sure how to describe the feeling) feel like it was slightly burning after peeing and wiping it clean. This aching would last for a long while post pee. Peeing itself didn't really hurt just feel very hot??? While it does hurt It's a very dull pain so at first I wasn't really worried but it has persisted for about a week now and I don't know what's wrong. At first I thought that maybe I had gotten soap or some other irritant into my crotch during a shower and maybe that had caused the burning/ache, but it didn't go away and persisted so I don't know what it is.

I am aware that UTI's usually have other symptoms which is why I am so confused as to what the hell is wrong with me. I wasn't sure if it was a UTI or something else but in hopes of it going away on it's own I have been drinking a lot of water the last few days in hopes that it is an uti then drinking a lot of water would prevent baacteria build up. I have also been taking a lot of vit c and some probiotics in hopes of that helping if there is an infection. So far I have been doing this for 7 days and it hasn't improved at all. Please get back to me as soon as you can. I have been freaking out for a few days now! I don't know what wrong with me or what to do to make it better. Do I have a UTI or a bacteria infection or something else. any advice would be greatly appreciated. I haven't had any blood in my pee or a fever or any other symptoms aside from chills and feeling bloated so I really don't know what wrong with me.

UTIs can be eased by drinking a lot of cranberry juice; water alone might not do the trick because it isn't acidic enough. But if you don't see some improvement in the next 3 or 4 days, see your doctor.
