I think I have a UTI. The area around my urethra feels itchy during the day and it burns when I pee. I'm going to make a doctor's appointment ASAP, but I was wondering what I should do in the meantime to soothe my symptoms. I have been drinking a ton of water, is there anything else I should do?

Pure cranberry juice (none of the blends or stuff with high-fructose corn syrup) can help with UTIs. It's strong, strong, stuff, but it does help quite a bit.
Other than that, a doctor asap is going to be best. Keep the fluids (water is excellent!) going.
