To the ladies.what is this?infection?
Hi guys, i have this terrible burn when i urinate for the past week now, this morning blood came out when i peed. I also have this urge to urinate a hundred times a day. Now it became itchy down there but deep inside and its so uncomfortable. what could this be, as i'm not sleeping around, neither is my husband, i also dont have money now to go to a doctor. Is there maybe something i can use just to ease the discomfort, and can i just go buy sumthing at our near pharmacist?

It sounds like a bladder infection. If you are passing blood, it will need antibiotics and you will need to see a doctor for this.
