You need to see a MD for urinary tract infection urine testing and possible treatment as this potential infection may not go away without antibiotic Rx. The downside of ignoring this problem is the infection can ascend to the kidneys which may be the source of your back pain.

Fully agree with Dr Ingram. Your self ministrations are essentially ineffective, and you need to seek expert medical attention. You may indeed have a bacterial infection or even an STD, and your symptoms appear potentially troublesome. This is NOT something you can handle on your own. Get proactive today and heed our advice.
