In brief: It

It sounds like the medicine she is taking is working.
As she continues to heal, the buring sensation and frequent urinations (which are symptoms of the infection) will also subside. In the meantime, otc pain medications may help. However, it is prudent to take her to an urgent care facility to be assessed. Perhaps she needs a stronger antibiotic to fight the infection. Blood in the urine should always be assessed by a doctor.
