hi there
some detail would have been appreciated.

its very difficult to comment without thorough history and examination.
based on little narration i can think you are suffering from urinary tract infection.
i would like to run some tests:
urine culture
ultrasound abdomen pelvis
std panel

if urinalysis show puss cells,a preliminary diagnosis of uti can be made and antibiotics can be started.

meanwhile drink a lot of water

some alkalising agent for decreasing burning in urinating

thanks for using ehealth forum
