Painful Urination Causes: Lately experiencing pain while urinating. Could I get a possible cause for this? Thank you.

Pain or burning sensations while urinating are most commonly a sign of infection in the urinary tract. A urinary tract infection is always a bacterial infection. Urine generally does not have any bacteria in it, and only contains a number of salts, fluids and waste products. In the case of bacterial infection, bacteria enters into the bladder or kidney, where it multiplies rapidly in the urine, causing a urinary infection. Cystilis, which is the most common of all urinary infections affects the bladder, while pyelonephritis affects the kidneys. Pyelonephritis is one of the more serious of the urinary infections. Urinary tract infections cause a great deal of discomfort, but they can be treated fairly easily if detected and addressed promptly.

Urinary tract infections are generally treated with oral antibiotics, but there are also a number of home remedies that can be quite effective and help speed up the healing process. Increasing your consumption of water is extremely important as it hydrates your system and helps to flush out toxins. Drinking unsweetened cranberry juice has also been found to be an effective remedy as it helps keep the lining of the urinary tract free from any bacteria that could otherwise accumulate. Adding a small amount of baking soda to the water you consume can help a lot as it neutralizes the acidity levels in your urine. Tender coconut water is another natural ingredient that is very popular and gives a lot of relief.
