Last Friday, 4 days ago now, I began to feel burning during and after urination. My sister said it was a uti so I took some over the counter treatment (cystex) and drank cranberry juice. Saturday it felt a little better but then Sunday I woke up and went to the bathroom and it burned so bad the instant I began to urinate that I had to stop and couldn't fully urinate. I went to urgent care that afternoon and they told me it was definatly a uti and gave me some antibiotics for it. Today was my last day on those antibiotics and it still hasnt improved at all...and today I noticed that there are a few blisters on my vagina and it seems really dry...so I also feel a lot of discomfort whenever I'm walking. Most of what I heard people say about their uti symptoms were internal (abdominal or back pain, urge to urinate often, etc) but I don't have any of those, just this horrible, intense, pain during and for a little bit after urination. Is this just a real bad uti that doesn't want to go away or could it possibly be some other type of infection??? Please help...It's to the point where I'm scared to go to the bathroom because I never know if it's going to hurt just a little or if it's going to be one of the times where it hurts so bad I'm in tears...
