Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.


Yes, it is possible to have Herpes simplex 2 in the urinary tract. If they detected this, then this is accurate and is liekly the cause of your burning. In this case, you should be treated with a medicaiton such as acyclovir to help clear up your infection and symptoms. Hope this helps.
