Usually does not: Cause itching. If you are on an antibiotic for the UTI you can develop a yeast infection which can cause itching so call your doctor and tell them your symptoms.

Yes: A UTI can cause burning more than itching. If there is itching, it is possible that you have a yeast infection.

I have a small hemeroid on the inner part of my anus. It does not itch or hurt. I noticed while wiping. Is there any suggestions to a fix?

No need.: Hemorroid won't need fixed until it's getting in the way of your bowel movements and/or hanging around down there and causing pain. Then see someone about fixing the hemorrhoid, but until then, ignore it.

Bacterial Vaginosis: A fishy odor generally does not occur with uti; bacterial vaginosis, which results in itching and a fishy odor is more likely. See your gyn if you are experiencing these symptoms so that they may fully evaluate and treat you.
