I'm experiencing some urgency...

I'm experiencing some urgency to urinate, mild burning but not when I urinate, and every time I go it's quite a bit

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?

All symptoms are very mild but a little concerning. Noticed it right after I used a new body soap about a week ago

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

It's almost like a subtle but constant burning sensation inside, but it doesn't burn at all when I go

Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician and I am happy to help you. Just a few questions: how old are you? Male or female? Any other sensation of burning on any other body parts since using the new soap?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
25 year old female. Nope, no other body parts have been affected

Thank you for that information. Just a few more questions. Are you experiencing any lower abdominal pain at all? Any vaginal discharge or odor? And are you currently or recently sexually active?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No abdominal pain that I'm aware of. No foul odor or discharge. I am sexually actively with one partner.

Thank you for that information. Based on what you've shared, your symptoms do not sound like a urinary tract infection and are unlikely associated with any sexually transmitted disease. More likely you are experiencing some sort of mild irritation or vaginitis. It is possible some of the new soap may have entered with the vagina to cause this. I recommend either soaking a warm water bath or using a Sitz bath available over the counter at the pharmacy to help soothe some of the discomfort. If the pain persists or worsens, I recommend seeing your GYN for an exam and possible testing. Can I help with anything else?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
