Dysuria is a burning, sharp pain coming from the urethra or its surroundings. Causes of dysuria:
- local irritation of the urethral orifice (intertrigo, balanitis, vulvovaginitis, use of inappropriate soaps or bath additives),
- evacuation of too concentrated urine (dehydration),
- inflammation of the lower urinary tract (cystitis, urethritis),
- using drugs that irritate the bladder mucosa (sulfonamides, cyclophosphamide, amitriptylin).
