I’m 27, burn & pain during urination yes, I last had sex last Saturday and there no pain, my last period was 18th September and lasted 3days as usual no I don’t take any medication, I’ve recently taken some migraine tablets a few days ago to relieve a migraine but nothing more than that

Please allow me just a few minutes.
I’ll reply you back soon after reviewing it.

Thanks for your cooperation and patience.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds like Vaginitis/ UTI.

Now I would recommend some self-care measures like
Do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.
Clean the area with DIAL soap.
And afterward, apply OTC 1% Clotrimazole ointment twice a day to relieve itching.

And keep the area dry and clean.
Wear loose-fitting cotton clothes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Motrin, AZO pills, cranberry juice, and Claritin for a few days.
RepHresh Pro-B probiotic supplement that balances yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health with just one capsule per day.

If your symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

 

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
