URINARY TRACT INFECTION (UTI)
The burning sensation while urinating usually a symptom of Urinary Tract Infection, also terms as UTI. It is the infection in the urinary system including kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. It happens mostly in the lower urinary tract. Even though the urinary system is designed to keep away infectious entities but sometimes the defense mechanism fails to perform.
Women get UTIs much more than men because the urethra is much shorter and closes to the anus and the vagina that’s why bacteria can easily enter into the bladder. One in five women experiences this infection during their lifetime. Men usually get UTIs when swollen prostate gland obstructs their urine flow or they get the infection from bacteria which are already present in the urinary tract.
