Doctor: Hank you for question. Even though you were initially tested negative for a urinary tract infection it is still possible that you may still have an infection. Sometimes, standard urinalysis can be falsely negative. As a result the infection will go undetected. We recommend that you follow up with your doctor in order to conduct another urine test and be started on a course of antibiotics to treat this infection. A sample of your urine may need to be sent to the laboratory for culturing of bacteria that could be causing your burning. Try to drink copious amounts of water in order to flush the bladder and urinary tract of any possible infection and slow the progression of this infection into the bladder and up the ureters towards the kidney. Please be guided accordingly.Thank you for choosing AskTheDoctor.com
