Need more info: Symptoms of urinary tract infection are non-specific. Burning is common, but can arise from yeast infections and from bacterial. Symptoms of urgency and frequency can arise from conditions other than an infection. The best doctor to diagnose is one who physically examines the area, takes serial urine cultures, ; who does not use antibiotics without good cause. Study interstitial cystitis.
