Dysuria is when you experience pain or a burning sensation when urinating. Although this condition can affect both
men and women, it is more common in women. This is often linked to urinary tract infections.

The very step in getting treatment for your dysuria is to determine what’s causing the pain. If it is caused by an
infection, inflammation, an issue with your bladder, prostate, or any other underlying medical condition.
∙If your dysuria is caused by a urinary tract infection, you may be treated with antibiotics.
∙If it is caused by an inflammation, or if you have irritated skin that burns when you pee, you will be advised
to avoid whatever is causing your irritation.
∙If the pain you are having stems from an issue or problem with your bladder or prostate, it is best that you
address your underlying condition so you will be relieved from dysuria.
You can also try at-home remedies to care for your dysuria, this can include taking over-the-counter anti–
inflammatory medications. You are also encouraged to drink more water to dilute your urine, making it more easier
There are several steps that you can take in order to prevent dysuria. This includes:
∙Drinking more water. Drink as much as you can or at least two to three liters of water a day.
∙If you wear a sanitary pad or a urinary incontinence pad, change it regularly or as soon as it gets spoiled to
prevent further irritation.
∙After urinating (for women), pat dry your urine from the insides of your vaginal lips.
Along with painful urination, make sure that you contact your medical provider if you have more of these
∙Have a drainage from your vagina or penis
∙Your urine has a foul smell, cloudy or if you notice blood in your urine
∙Have back or side pain
