Take long, slow deep breaths into your stomach area. When you get tense you tend to start breathing up in your chest. Try to consciously inflate your stomach as you breathe in and deflate it as you breathe out.
Try to clear your mind of expectations of pain and either think about something else (like your breathing) or picture the infection, flowing smoothly and painlessly from your body.

Home Remedies

The patient should not expose himself to sun or heat. Excessive perspiration takes away lot of water from the body and the urine becomes concentrated. Passage of this concentrated urine through the urinary tract causes irritation and gives rise to burning sensation.  
  • Urinate as soon as you feel the urge to urinate to reduce the risk of infection.
  • Avoid eating spicy and sugary foods.
  • Follow proper hygiene daily. After urinating, women should dry the area from front to back
  • Avoid wearing tight clothes
