why does my urine burn my skin
Here at R29, we take our bathroom business
very seriously. Honestly, sometimes it's the most relaxing part of the day, which is why we protect it so fiercely в and why we get so worried when something is off. Like, you know, when it suddenly burns with the fire of a thousand Sriracha bottles every time you pee. If it's any comfort, painful urination is exceedingly common. How often do women ask doctors about this particular symptom? " All the time," says, an ob/gyn at NYU Langone Medical Center. So there you go в you're far from alone, and there's no need to be embarrassed. But just because it's common doesn't mean it's always simple to diagnose. That's partly because the burning sensation could originate from a variety of places, both internal (like your bladder) or external (the skin around your vagina). "When you donвt have the very classic symptoms of a bladder infection [e. g. feeling like you have to pee all the time], itвs hard to tell if itвs the bladder or the vaginal area that's causing pain," Dr.
Dardik says. Essentially any dry or irritated skin around your vagina can become inflamed when it comes into contact with urine because "youвre putting acid on skin thatвs irritated. " So if your bathroom stall texts are coming with a few more fire emoji these days, you'll want to check in with your doctor to figure out what's really going on. Here are a few of the culprits she might pinpoint: The most common cause of that burning sensation is a UTI. These occur when bacteria from outside of your body make it to your bladder, causing symptoms such as abdominal pain, a frequent need to pee, and, yes, burning when you go to the bathroom. If you've had one before, you're probably already well-attuned to those symptoms в and you know when you're getting another one. But your doctor will still probably want to see you in her office before prescribing a round of antibiotics. "When you treat a UTI, youвre guessing which bacteria is in there, which means youвre guessing which antibiotic will work," explains Dr.
Dardik. So if you get a prescription without getting your urine tested and you're not feeling better in a few days, your doctor won't know if it's because she gave you the wrong kind of antibiotic or because you don't really have a UTI. "You have no idea what you treated in the first place," she says. So, it may be a(n extra) pain to get an appointment with your doc, but you'll be glad you did it. STIs "Anything that breaks the integrity of the skin will cause burning when you urinate," says Dr. Dardik. That means some STIs can definitely cause pain. If you're in the middle of a, for instance, you may have sores that will be particularly sensitive to urine. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are also. Skin Irritation Again, anything that messes with the skin around your vaginal and urethral areas can cause painful, burning urination. And that's a long list of possibilities: Burning when you pee may be a result of a yeast infection, which causes irritation and itchiness (read: more irritation) around the vagina and vulva.
You might also feel that pain after particularly rough intercourse. Even a change in your laundry detergent could irritate your skin. Menopause can also cause drying of the vaginal area. So as annoying as it is, get to that doc в and make your bathroom visits great again. I have a problem: it stings when I urinate. This doesn't happen all the time, usually one time in two, and when it does the sting it isn't always painful. Even when it is 'painful' it isn't intolerable. My urine colour is always normal, either clear or yellowy. Thinking back through a decade and more, I've always had it. However, during the last two months last year I had, and I am just not sure how long I may have had it. My girlfriend never caught it from me (she had a culture test) but was also given medication and she took it for seven days as directed. I had 14 days of the same medication ( ).
Stinging/painful urination is a symptom of chlamydia, but I have had a sting since childhood, through puberty, through my 'sexual era' and still have the sting now. Despite this, I had chlamydia for only a month. The doctors I saw said it was probably just the effect of strong foods (curry for example) or drinks. Any advice, help or answers? It otherwise does not bother me at all and has no effect on anything else such as peeing 'performance' or sexual performance or general healthiness. Stinging during urination is nearly always due to an. So it's not surprising that you were diagnosed with chlamydia recently. But why might you have had stinging when you were younger? Well, maybe you had some infection then, but we'll never know now. Your letter appears to say that you've had some stinging since you were treated for chlamydia. If that's the case, then you should have a further to see if any infection is still present. Last updated 27. 08. 2014
