Treatment for UTIs

Our 247 GP doctors may prescribe a course of antibiotics to help clear up the infection. It’s important to take the entire course of antibiotics as directed, even if you start feeling better before the medication is finished. This helps ensure that all the bacteria are eradicated, reducing the likelihood of a recurrence.

UTI Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

UTIs can be caused by bacteria that infect the bladder, urethra, kidneys, or other parts of the urinary tract. Symptoms may include pain or burning during urination, a strong urge to urinate, frequent urination, cloudy or bloody urine, and lower abdominal pain. If left untreated, UTIs can lead to serious complications, such as kidney damage or sepsis.

In addition to antibiotics, you can also take steps to manage your symptoms and speed up the healing process. Drinking plenty of water can help flush out the bacteria, and avoiding irritants like caffeine and alcohol can help reduce discomfort. You may also find relief from pain relievers.

Preventing future UTIs is also important. Some steps you can take include drinking plenty of water, wiping from front to back after using the bathroom, urinating after sex, and avoiding irritating feminine products or spermicides. If you’re prone to UTIs, your 247 GP doctor may recommend additional measures, such as taking a low-dose antibiotic regularly or using a vaginal estrogen cream.
