UTI with itching?

Hello! I had been having normal symptoms of a UTI (burning, frequency/urge to go, bladder pressure, cloudy/foul smelling urine) for about 4 days and I finally made it to the urgent care yesterday. They did a test and it came back that I do have a UTI. They put me on cipro for 10 days and because antibiotics typically give me a yeast infection I asked for Diflucan. The doctor gave me two Diflucan pills, one to take yesterday and one to take Saturday. The problem is, when I left the doctor I started getting vaginal itching somewhat close to a yeast infection and it's definitely worse today. I get UTI's frequently but I don't think extreme itching is usually a symptom. Has anyone else experienced this? I do have genital herpes but no outbreaks in the past year so I don't think it would be related to that. Also, when I was at the doctor I told her that I was having some pain/sensitivity/itching around my clitoris and she said it looked dry. Has anyone experienced that? Any ideas as to what could be causing the itching? Thank you!

Re: UTI with itching?

Vaginal area itching is not a sign of a UTI, so you have more than one thing affecting you right now.

Vaginal area itching is usually caused by a yeast infection, but can also be caused by viral bacterial infections, or sensitivities to chemicals like spermicides.

The creams to treat yeast infections are relatively inexpensive and you could try starting with that. If not improved within 5-7 days I'd suggest you then visit a gynocologist to get a diagnosis and get the right treatment.
