I had what felt like a bladder infection i took the Azo pills and drank lots of water the burning went away still have pressure on bladder though???

My boyfriend made a sex toy out of caulking. I have been running a fever, no appettite, chills. At first thought i was getting a bladder infection. So started taking Azo pills. Plus have bad head aches all day long.
I : I don't know which type of caulking was used. So I have included mds material for a caulking that is frequently used. Your health shouldn't play second fiddle to sexual fun.
