Urination Feels Hot And Painful?
I want to ask why my pee sometimes feels hot and painful, sometimes it goes away and sometimes it recurs. Thank you
Hello Dede, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Urinating can sometimes feel hot when the body temperature is rising or has a fever. However, if the pee feels hot is accompanied by pain when urinating, there may be an infection in the urinary tract. Urinary tract infections are actually more common in women than men because men's urethral tubes are longer than women, making it more difficult for infections to enter. The possibility of urinary tract infection in men can increase due to several risk factors, including:
There is a blockage in the urinary tract such as urinary stones, enlarged prostate
After surgery on the urinary tract or performing certain medical actions such as inserting a urinary catheter
Having sexual intercourse through the anus
Staying in bed for a long time (bed rest / immobilization)
Habit of holding back pee
The presence of certain diseases such as diabetes
Have a sexually transmitted infection
Not yet circumcised / circumcised
If indeed you often feel these symptoms, especially if accompanied by other symptoms such as difficulty urinating, pus or discharge from the genitals, foul smelling urine, blood in the urine, and other symptoms, you should check with your doctor to get further evaluation and management. The doctor will perform an examination including blood and urine tests to see if there is a possibility of infection, as well as an ultrasound examination or CT scan if other disorders are suspected. Therapy for urinary tract infections is administration of antibiotics.
Some of the things you can do right now:
Drink in sufficient quantities, at least 2-3 liters a day
Don't hold your pee
Have healthy sexual intercourse, use condoms during sexual intercourse
Urinating before and after sexual intercourse
If you haven't been circumcised, clean the area under your foreskin regularly every time you shower.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
