Hi there,
Having spent yesterday enduring the pain build-up of a developing urinary tract infect, ingested pharmacy recommended remedy (Uromil), drank a pint of warm water with apple cider vinegar & honey, and rolled around in agony for a couple of hours with a hot water bottle stuffed between my legs, I was dubious of my boyfriend's suggestion to try an ice-pack on the area instead - his reasoning being - the pain is distinctly hot & burning, so cool it down! However, I tried it, and 10 minutes later, AMAZINGLY sweet relief! Within an hour, I was almost feeling pain free. Do check with your doctor/pharmacist, just in case this advice is misguided, but believe me - it works if you can get past the initial coldness...
Good luck...
