In brief: Michigan Urologist

Frequently your state of hydration can make your urethra more sensitive.
Dehydration with dark urine may lead to burning. Also sensitivity can be seen with irritation from soaps, detergents, etc. Prior to the antibiotic era, true urinary tract infections were treated with high fluid intake and they would resolve in 3 days. Other causes include interstitial cystitis, urethritis, trauma.
