Hello. Thank you for posting.

Dysuria is a symptom of pain, discomfort or burning when urinating.  Besides infections, other reasons that area may be irritated, painful, or inflamed include:  sexually transmitted infections, stones in the urinary tract, irritation of the urethra from sexual activity, interstitial cystitis, (a condition caused by bladder inflammation) vaginal changes related to menopause, vaginal sensitivity or irritation related to use of scented soaps or bubble bath, toilet paper, or other products such as douches or spermicides, side effects from certain medications or treatments, or possibly a tumor in the urinary tract.
