Customer Question

Have some burning at the end of my urination stream. No other symptoms. Don't really have time to go to the doctor but I have zpack already. Is this the right antibiotic to take? Do I need an antibiotic?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: That's really the only issue. Just burning when I urinate. Started about two days ago. No other issue. I'm a 49 yo male.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $34 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

This is Dr. David

the only way to know if you need a course of antibiotics is to see a doctor and get a urinalysis and urine culture to check for bacteria in your urine.

many issues can cause burning when you urinate

a bladder stone, drinking alcohol, caffeine can all cause burning.

how severe is this burning?
