For several weeks now I have been itching down there....I used some anti-itch cream that helped when I remembered to use it. The itching subsided a little so I stopped using it.
The itching came back about a week ago and I can't find my itch cream so I have been scratching a little - now, for the past few days, it hurts to urinate!!! A LOT!! Like, I double over the pain is so bad and it literally takes my breath away it hurts so bad!!
I have been put on a couple different new meds. I found a scar that opened up and was infected. We tested it (at the Dr's) and found out it was a strep/staph infection. My Dr. thought it was probably MRSA. At first she initially put me on a really potent anti-biotic then when the results came back she took me off of it and put me on a HUGE dose of Tetrylcylcene. I took 2 doses of the new med and stopped because it made me deathly ill. I was throwing up constantly. As soon as I went off it I was better the next day. That was 2 days ago.
I am a little embarrassed to go to the Dr. and talk about this painful urination problem - it hurts 100% of the time - not just when I pee, but is definitely worse when I pee. On top of that, my diabetes Dr. just put me back on my water pill so I am peeing ALL THE TIME!!
What should I do? If I talk to my Dr., how should I tell her?

It really does sound like a UTI or bladder infection to me. You should not be embarrassed to talk to your doctor about these things. The doctor is there to help you and make you better, not to judge you. This could be something serious and you need to get it taken care of! Try drinking some cranberry juice. I have a cousin who gets frequent UTI's and describes them just the way that you have and the juice helps her out a lot. I've always heard that taking antibiotics will make you more susceptible to any kind of infection, so maybe being on that very potent antibiotic caused you to get a UTI or bladder infection! Good luck and I hope all turns out well for you.
