Where is the burning; urinary or anus region?

What is your age and gender?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Urinary F 64
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 12 days ago.

A urinary tract infection is the commonest cause for this severe burning. A urine exam and culture test would confirm it and give you the most efficacious antibiotic to eradicate the infection. You may take Azo which is available without prescription as a urinary analgesic meanwhile. Following measures also would help;

1) Cranberry juice or Cranberry extract tablets.

2) Plenty of fluids.

The other cause can be urethra prolapse, bladder stone for your burning, which would need physical exam and ultrasound for the diagnosis.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
