Hi , I’ve constantly got a burning in the nether regions, soothed somewhat, by sitting in a shallow bath of baking soda . I hate having baths too , preferring a quick daily shower .
I’ve had this since I started PMR , I’ve had all the urology tests , countless , ridiculous amounts of antibiotics, HRT cream , anti fungal tablets. I know there’s an increase in UTI’s with PMR , but could it be inflammation.
I’m tempted to try 3 days of some large doses of Pred to see if it stops it .
I’m taking probiotics and I’ve never tested positive for thrush , but thought it a possibility after all the antibiotics. Also I dip samples and they’re clear .
I did read we can have embedded bacteria in the bladder that shows itself during stressful times . But I’m not sure about this . My instinct is it’s inflammation from polymyalgia.
