Wondering if I have a bladder infection. Don't think so

Customer Question

Hi .... Wondering if I have a bladder infection. Don't think so because it does not hurt to urinate but burns on the outside area afterwards. Any
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: about 2 months but it is not painful ... it just stings and burns for awhile.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I am wondering about dampness being a problem. Sweating, slight leakage at times. It seems it is something more like chapped skin. I use vasaline (sp?) and powder. This usually helps until the next time.

If you have a bladder infection, it usually hurts and burns as the stream starts, there may be blood in the urine, and you will be going many times small amounts. Burning after indicates a skin irritation from the urine. This can be due to yeast infection or herpes infection. It would be good to see a Dr for an exam.
