No, you need to see a physician and have this evaluated so you can be treated properly. There are over the counter test strips for UTI's, but they are limited--you will still need to go and give a correctly obtained sample to identify the organism and get the proper antibiotic.
If it is a water infection they are easy to flush out without antibiotics... You just drink it out yourself. And dont go to the loo every 3 seconds like yo think you need to...try to go every hour and a half....
I had , what I thought was a yeast infection. So I bought an over the counter medicine(off-brand) same ingredients as monostat. I used the 3 day inserts and cream. The infection seemed to clear up, but now I am bleeding what appears to be fresh blood, moderate, not real heavy, and some cramping. I would just chalk it up to starting my period, but I just had it 2 weeks ago, and like I previously stated, it looks like fresh blood.
Are there any drug stores where you live? If so, you can buy an over the counter medication for a yeast infection. If you do not have this and still use the medication it will not hurt you. I'm so sorry you're going through this and not getting any answers. If I were you I would go ahead and try to make an appointment. Maybe you just might be able to see a Dr soon.
Hi, I don't know about any home remedies, but you could pick up an over the counter Vagisil screening kit. The kit can indicate whether you have a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or something more serious in which you would need to see the doctor for. As far as the home pregnancy test, I'd try again using first morning urine if you haven't already. Hope this helps until you can get in to see the doctor.
It can be due to stress or urge incontinence but there are other causes of incontinence, such as nerve damage. Seek the opinion of a physician. The most important laboratory test is a urine analysis. The need for other blood tests or imaging studies like ultrasound X-rays and CT scan will depend upon the clinical situation and presentation. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Kidney stones could also cause pain and frequent urination. A simple urine test at the doctors will tell you whats up and if an infection should only take an antibiotic to clear up. Waiting to long may only make it worse.
The problem is--I feel no burning, no pain, no urgency to pee or anything to that degree. I did take an over the counter UTI test and the results were positive. However, when I read the symptoms for a UTI, I don't feel as though the fit me. I did have a UTI about two months ago. I'm worried that maybe this isn't something left over by a UTI, but rather could be an STD. Are there any STDs that would make you have a strong urine smell with no other symptoms whatsoever?
Excessive drinking of alcohol, taking prescription or over-the-counter drugs like diuretics, sedatives, narcotics, or non-prescription cold and diet medicines can also cause these symptoms. Seek the opinion of a physician. The most important laboratory test is a urine analysis. The need for other blood tests or imaging studies like ultrasound X-rays and CT scan will depend upon the clinical situation and presentation.Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Do you recommend any over the counter remedies for this? I know that you cannot diagnose me over the internet but any point of view would help. Thank you for your time.
Although frequent urination is quite common during pregnany, it sounds like a bladder infection to me. I had the same problem with keytones in my urine and tested positive for the infection.I had no pain or burning at all. I would start the antibiotics right away. They are safe to take while pregnant. You could do more harm not treating the infection than the antibiotics could do. Good luck to you!
i knwo it sounds strange but will help the pain lots. over the counter they sell baritum that misspelled as the pharmacist. it is a pill that is mostly die "turns your urine orange" so you can tell how much you flush you kidneys and a little pain reliever to calm your kidney pain but not much mainly it for the die. take it and drink a beer then drink 2 glasses of water dont wait just set there and drink this all strait away.

I ordered kidney complete to see if this product cures all my kidney problems? Has anyone out there tried this product? If so, any news on if it works or how good it works?

He put me on dyflucan and over the counter topical cream. The dyflucan was supposed to also re stabilize my stomach bacteria because I was having horrible stomach cramps possibly due to the augmentin and the yeast infection apparently. Weeks passed and my stomach cramps subsided but not the issue with my penis. The same symptoms are still there and I am now on a prescription strength cream known as Oxistat. I have been on this for over a week now with no noticeable signs of it clearing up.

Try to keep her fever under control with over the counter pain medications(advil or tylenol) to lower the fever. If there is not improvement in a weeks time, take her back to the doctors to be looked at again.
First thing there is a bladder infection test you can get over the counter at your local walgreens or cvs I would do that first - if it comes up negative then I would go to the hospital because what if it is something serious If it comes up as if you have one just go to your local whole foods market or your local alternative market and ask for UVA-URSI GET THE LIQUID!!!!!!
I read the above as both the index case and the married woman tested with both IgM and IgG tests for HSV and both came back negative. Since it's 3-4 months since his escort exposure I'd say it's safe to say he didn't get HSV from that incident. The next time you see your scabs (if there is a next time), you could get a PCR swab test done of them. Much better than culture (what you probably had). That will tell you more clearly about HSV.
The co-worker is going to get retested for Herpes. In the original test the blood clotted before the test could be done. Thanks!
Is it a vitamin deficiency , what what is causing this something is. Most of the time I feel like the test pig, people are amazed and intrigued and turned off , I'd really like someone who has what I have to talk to to compare and share,. It's hard I hope one of you think this sounds familiar to you.

I did take an over the counter yeast infection test which tested at a PH level of 4.5 and could possibly be a yeast infection since I have other symptoms present. (but has ruled out BV and Trich) I have been taking Acidophalous pills for the past three days. Could that have brought my PH levels down. Why are you so convinced that I don't have genital herpes?. Is it because the sore I have is not painful at all and the location is unusual for herpes.
To make things worse, I am seven months pregnant, so my OB will only allow me to take over the counter meds which help...NOT AT ALL!! I told my OB that there are days that I feel like "cutting my cooch out of my body" b/c I am soooooooo irritated!! I have no clue what to do!! It will go away for about a week, then lo and behold, it comes back with what seems to be a vengeance!! Any suggestions for a pregnant woman would be greatly appreciated!!
so what kind of treatment do they give for an UTI? can it be treated over the counter?
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....
They then took a complete gyno test to check the DNA. They informed me that I didn't have a fungal infection but that I had a yeast infection and that this normally didn't need treatment but that they would treat me for it anyhow. Now (3 months later), I again have cuts and have been back to the gyno. They have done a complete test again just to make sure of everything and next week I receive the results. Anyhow, the doctors informed me that if it's a fungal infection this needs treatment.
