Hi doctor,

I think that I have UTI. I have a little bit of irritation when I use bathroom and my pee seems to be cloudy. Sometimes, I have itching. I have an urge to keep peeing. I have this issue for a week. What is wrong with me?



Welcome to

You have a more likely chance to have urinary tract infection. It occurs more commonly among women. Please mention whether you had any fever in the past few days. Having cloudy urine indicates the presence of protein in the urine. Please mention whether you noticed any swelling around your eyes. I suggest you do a urine routine and microscopy to see for proteinuria and pus cells in urine. It helps to give a definitive diagnosis of UTI (urinary tract infection). Drink lots of fluid around two liters per day.

The Probable causes:

You have UTI (urinary tract infection).

Investigations to be done:

Do CBC (complete blood count) and urine routine and microscopy.

Differential diagnosis:

You have UTI (urinary tract infection).

Probable diagnosis:

You have UTI (urinary tract infection).

Treatment plan:

It can be decided after knowing the results of your investigations.
