Burning and dysuria- how to cure?
Hello, my sister is a 28 year old married woman, mother of two children. She gives a two-day history of burning upon urination and describes a feeling of urinary urgency and frequency, mild suprapubic pain, odd smell to her urine. Today her urine is cloudy and red. She's worried it may contain blood. What to do? Please advise.
@kinjal Treatment for dysuria depends on the cause of your pain/burning sensation. The first step in your treatment is to determine if your painful urination is caused by infection, inflammation, dietary factors, or a problem with your bladder or prostate. Urinary tract infections are most commonly treated with antibiotics. If your pain is severe, you may be prescribed phenazopyridine. Note: this medication turns you urine red-orange and stains undergarments. Inflammation caused by irritation to the skin is usually treated by avoiding the cause of the irritant. Dysuria caused by an underlying bladder or prostate condition is treated by addressing the underlying condition. There are several steps you can take to reduce the discomfort of painful urination, including drinking more water or taking an over-the-counter aid to treat painful urination. Other treatments need prescription medications. If you have frequent urinary tract infections, your provider can help find the cause.
