Over the counter bladder infection medicine

Common Questions and Answers about Over the counter bladder infection medicine


But, I would like to know if there is an over the counter medicine. I only get the urgency after a little stress. It stops after 10 hours or so on it's own. But, a cheaper "as needed" OTC medicine would sure be something I am interested in.
Is there anything I can take over-the-counter that will fix this? I was researching Uristat? Are there OTC antibiotics I could take?
Is there a good yeast infection medicine that's over the counter that will cure the yeast infection instead of just relieve the symtoms? Also same question for UTI, kidney infection, bladder infection?
That might be true, I'll ask my doctor is their a pill he can take, thank u
They had to start antibiotics first though to counter act the infection present. The procedure was done laproscopically without problems. I hurt immediately when I awoke and was placed on a Demerol Pump to control my own pain. After about the second day, I started noticing my legs, and lower back and really my entire body becoming sore. I felt like I had developed chin splints, but throughout my entire body. It lasted for approximately 2 weeks.
I have tried Gas X-tums-rolaids-and most of the anti acids that you can buy over the counter. Nothing seems to work to relieve the pressure. It goes away in several hours and might not return back for another month. Well, I just chalked it up with gas build up or something I ate. Couldn't tell you what I ate to cause this back then but can tell you the pain. I burp all the time after I eat which you would think it would relieve the pressure but it doesn't.
were you able to use the cream for the whole time specified? and did the infection go away after the cream was done? maybe if you dont have the money for a doc ( believe me i know how it is) then try a different brand of meds for a yeast infection, there are many brands.
Most of the research calls for apple cider vinegar which I'll be picking up at the store today, but some called for white and I figured after trying everything over-the-counter that exists it wouldn't hurt. I sat in the bath for 30 minutes and have to say, it helped. I was given relief while in the bath and after. Once done I used a vinegar & water ****** (just be sure if you are trying this that it is just vinegar and water, maybe boric acid....
Although, I'm not sure it is a 'cure', I'm still in the process of experimenting. I did buy over the counter yeast infection treatment as well. I'll tell you though, the yogurt was INSTANT relief of the itching and pain for me. Just try it and you'll see it helps, at least until the medication does its job. Also, I am using aerius, an allergy reliever to help stop the itch as well.
I went back and forth between being convinced it was herpes to being convinced it was a yeast infection. I lost sleep over it, and when the sores popped up and I was diagnosed, I thought it was the end of the world. I thought I was damaged goods and no one would want me.... well.....Guess what, two months later and I am doing A-OK! I think about it from time to time, it's hard to forget, but as a little time passes, you just get over it like you would anything else.
When I have symptoms, I take Uristat, an over the counter medicine for the UTI symptoms. They go away for a few weeks or a month. But at least I am not taking the antibiotics all the time now. That worried me becasue you do not want to get immune to the antibiotics. So maybe try the Uristat instead of the Cipro next time. I would LOVE to find the answer to this problem too.
I know that sounds like an old wives tale but i would literallty get one instantly if he drank beer and gave me oral without brushing his teeth and rinsing with mouth wash,,,, anyways i am now with a new partner for the past 3 months and we recently started having unprotected sex and I have had 2 yeast infections... hopefully the nuvaring will help me out here. I used an over the counter medicine the first time and now am on a prescription terconazole i think it's called.
(to support her claims, i initially ignored her advice and bought one anyway, and sure enough a few weeks later it was back!) one preventive measure you can take is an over-the-counter pill called AZO Yeast. if you take one a day it will help prevent future infections, although i'm sure they may still occur from time to time (just part of the fun of being a woman! LOL).
Clues that you may have a bacterial infection include - pus coming out of your nose, - upper tooth pain or pain in your face, - sinus pain on one side, - new or worse symptoms after initially improving after a cold Instead of antibiotics, reach for over the counter painkillers, fever reducers, and decongestants.
I still feel the pressure in the head. It doesnt fix the excessive bone cracking all over my bone and the pain that comes with it. And as squirtatious EDS may be a part of the problem also MS/autoimmune disease. My neurologist told me the popping to normal and cut me short. I'm thinking I kinow better than that. I am a nurse but he don't even let him know that after two years I've been seeing him.
(Ever notice how medication for jock itch is located in the medicine area of the drug store while medication for a yeast infection is located near the condemns). Obviously men were in charge of store layout, not women.... but I digress). These things can be caused by the food you eat. Sugars, highly refined sugars (anything that has wheat in it), vinegar, mushrooms, alcohol, and anything containing these things like salad dressing with vinegar, wine, beer, spirits, etc.
i had a terrible discharge and went to the doctor. today i got the results and was told i had a strep b infection, and given a prescription for amoxil. i only had one cut this time, at the top of my labia which happened when i was pulling them apart to look at everything. i have been freaking out that this is herpes, but the tests showed this strep b infection. the only info i can find on that is for pregnant women, elderly women, or women with compromised immune systems.
All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good. None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them. Has anyone an answer or better still has anyone else had this problem.
Eating a cup of yogurt a day when taking antibiotics will sometimes help avoid the yeast infection b/c of the active cultures. Once you have a yeast infection, over the counter creams have always worked for me, though I have heard a gynecologist say that 7 day creams are the way to go and to avoid the 1 and 3 day treatments.
All of this worked for me and it was a lot cheaper than my copays to all my doctor visits, and prescriptions and over the counter monistat that I wasted my money on. I am actually sticking to some of my diet just because I feel alot healthier and want to prevent future recurrences. I eat breads, sugar, and dairy in moderation but still only drink water... there's no point in drinking ounces of juices/sodas with 15-30 grams of sugar in them. Yeast feeds on sugar and wine and beer immediately.
Hi I am going through the same, went on holiday 8 weeks ago and had cystitis. I took some over the counter medicine and this cleared up, then I started to get extremely painful cramps and like a dull pain in my groin area. I went to the doctors and they did blood, urine and swab tests and they could not see an infection. I then went to the gum clinic and they did tests for all STD'S including HIV and they came back negative.
I have pernicious anemia. The itching would almost drive me crazy. PN is dangerous if left undiagnosed. You need a more intensive blood test than just the usual cbc. If you have it, you just need b-12 injections. No amount of pills will help. Just get this checked, as it will ultimately become deadly.
Me being impatient decided to go to the drug store the next day and get an over the counter yeast product as well [1st time using]. I bought the Monistat 1 ovule. The next morning I was extremely red and raw looking, swollen and miserable. The stuff looked like glue up there. It stayed extremely red and swollen for a good two days. By day 3 is seemed slightly better, but I still feel so irritated down there. There looks like a white film on the inside of my labia.
Ask if you can take the over the counter AZO before hand. It turns the urine orange so can mess up a urine test if they need one, however they may let you swing by the day before for the dipstick test then take the AZO the day of. Also you can ask your doctor if he would prescribe one valium or pain med to take right before hand.
He located the source of the pain as being the top of the kidney (not the gall bladder/liver/GI tract!) and in the absence of evidence of renal problems he thinks that adhesions (resulting from exploratory laparoscopy 8 yrs ago ?) are probably the source. The adhesions are possibly connecting the kidney to part of the colon - so the smallest constipation pulls on the kidneys and nerves. Some doctors can't find their kidneys from their colons!
I am thinking to do the shower thing which I read about which is to cleanse my sinus passages by bending over in the shower (can't quite figure it out yet) and let the water run into the nasal passages, you have to be sure you won't get dizzy and fall, of course. But I keep thinking it's an infection from something that might have gotten into my nose or from dental work. it's annoying and I worry that if it's a fungus or viral thing it will travel to my brain and heart. Oh well ...
The skin lesions could be due to allergic reaction or skin infection. Over-the-counter antihistamine medications may help provide relief. If the cream prescribed by your doctor is not helping, I also suggest that you go for a follow-up for proper management. A change of medication may be indicated. Diagnosing skin lesions can be tricky because direct clinical examination is needed. Try also not to scratch to prevent secondary bacterial infection. Take care and hope to hear from you soon.
Really? MS? Come on now. Now, while I don't want to downplay your own afflictions (and I'm sorry you were diagnosed with MS, it's a horrible disease) - but considering there are QUITE A FEW posts of similiar nature, perhaps it's best to help provide more common/less severe possibilities as well as the "worst case scenarios?
I will be having the next set of infection in June 2008. I have the infection in both knees at the same time and get up and walk out of the office. Just a little follow up, I need both of by knees replace, and would not do it now because of family's needs. Will have the knee replace next year. and with the Synvisc, I would have had to get the surgery earlier. It worked for me. Good luck.
I also had severe and constant diarrhea the entire time I was on the medicine to the point that it was bloody most of the time. My face was very swollen, pale, and I had dark sunken in eyes. Nobody knew that I was on lexapro, but everybody told me that I looked unhealthy.
