No I am sorry to have dropped out like that but the power went out here.

No problem. What I'm asking is have you been diagnosed with a UTI and have the other symptoms only been since that began?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I haven't been to a doctor yet. The burning feeling has been there for about a month. the UTI about four days.

Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
If you have an area that you describe between the anus and vagina and feels like parchment paper and burns / stings, what you probably have is called Lichen Sclerosis which requires a small 'punch' biopsy about the size of a pencil head eraser to confirm and the treatment for this is with Clobesterol, a high potency steroid - so you need to see your ob/gyn to get this biopsy perform and to diagnosis this correctly so that you can be treated.
