    Yes but if it hurts for her to pee a diuretic might not be the best thing lol

    If the only thing you change is TP then I would try to remember what kind of TP you had before all this started & get that kind.

    No, it's the very best thing. The goal is to flush out whatever is irritating. If cranberry doesn't work you move on to abx.

    The worst thing you can do is dehydrate and not pee as much, it only increases the chances of a worse infection.

    Plus peeing diluted urine when you're plenty hydrated burns WAY less than peeing out dehydrated-person's urine.

    Jess, fun fact? I was very short term dating one of those guys when I was annoyed with Denis. I didn't get ringworm but Denis likes to use that fact and remind me of what else is out there when I'm uppity. :p

    Ringworm in delicate places like that gets bad fast because it's the perfect warm and wet environment for fast growth. My dad got ringworm when my brother was wrestling from doing his laundry for him. When the infection spread to his groin, it turned into a very painful rash that was producing pus and was probably the most pain he'd been in since his vasectomy. Definitely get in to a doctor asap.

    Yeah I am bad about drinking water so my pee is always super concentrated & when I have to go ( not when I am going, rather the urge to go) is a vet strong almost burning sensation .

    No not yet... I was super lightheaded all day again because shark week is really heavy right now and since I passed out yesterday I didn't want to take the chance of driving. I'm definitely going to get in to be seen though. Pain wise it seems to be way less painful now and I drank a lot of cranberry juice and water today. Regardless, I'm definitely going to still go see a dr.
