Urinary tract infection over the counter remedies

Common Questions and Answers about Urinary tract infection over the counter remedies


Avatar n tn in my opinion all can contribute and have an impact to getting these episodes and all have negative affects on your health in general. The portion of the digestive tract that sits close to the vagus nerve may be whats impacted and contributing to this thing especially when there is inflamation it probably touches or comes closer to it?
Avatar n tn You can take a benedryl at night to help sleep and it is an antihistamine too. It is over the counter. I would ask the doctor about your foot. I'm sure it is fungal. You may need something prescription level to get rid of it. Or perhaps it is a staph . She should look at it.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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....
Avatar f tn Since I have to treat 48 weeks I have been counting down the days until the Incivek is over and hoping that things will get a little easier once this part is over. Thanks!
Avatar n tn You can google for research on Serrapeptase, which is an over the counter supplement. Doctors in Europe prescribe this to reduce the inflammation following facial and mouth surgery. If you decide to try this, iHerb.com has good prices. Lyme Disease can cause bladder and prostate symptoms. From what I've read, some people present with only urinary tract symptoms, before being diagnosed with Lyme. Good luck with the doctor appointment.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I am 23 weeks along now,and have had one for the past 2 weeks. i ended up with a Urinary Tract Infection. My doc prescribed an antibiotic, but he really pushes me to drink lots of water and drink some cranberry juice, which has acid in it that helps kill bacteria in the body. I have been taking his advice and seeing the results I want- NO irritating yeast or Urinary Tract Infection.
Avatar m tn antibiotics are delivered to the site of infection by the bloodstream. There is some blood flow in the sinuses, but for many people it’s not sufficient to deliver enough of the drug to kill the large number of bacteria in the infected sinuses. You may also have learned that saline irrigation works a little bit to relieve your sinusitis, but not enough. The reason is even simpler: gravity.
Avatar f tn The first time I had sex almost a year ago, I ended up with what I believe was a urinary tract infection the next day -- constant need to urinate, burning and stinging pain while passing urine, cloudy urine and some lower abdominal pressure. I tried out several home remedies, such as drinking excessive water, adding baking soda to water, taking vitamin C, drinking a lot of cranberry juice and so on. The infection went away after about two days.
Avatar f tn Very timely. This has been going on for over a week now. I've been looking all over the net for some relief, anything.... I did find one reference to nerve pinching that may make sense. I can't sleep it's so bad right now- for days. It's particularly the back of my neck and along my spine.... Right now I have on a heavy shirt, turtlrkneck sweater, over sweater, scarf, headband and jacket. I'm laying with a heating pad for my back. I won't see my doctor until Tues.
Avatar n tn 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 ...
Avatar n tn Peppers, alcohol, and other strong foods can irritate the prostate and the urinary tract, so try to avoid them if you think this is causing your problem. Another cause of irritation is constipation and hard stools, which press against the bladder and prostate. Take a stool softener and drink more water if you have hard stools. Take saw palmetto if told to do so by a doctor; this helps with minor prostate enlargement (BPH), but does not treat infections or anything else.
Avatar f tn There are over the counter remedies for yeast infections. Are you certain it's a yeast infection. I understand you covering up in front of the parents about your sexual activity. However people can get yeast infections & it doesn't have to mean anything sexual. Incorrectly wiping, called back to front is the main cause of yeast infections. Please ask your parents to take you to the doctor. Keep posting. Thank you.
Avatar n tn if you'd like to continue shaving with a razor a home remedy for popping the really sore in grown hairs is to take the skin from inside of an egg shell and place it over the bump and let it harden to your skin. this draws the bump and all the puss and blood to a head, and it will ooze out on it's own.
Avatar f tn Start using soap that is unscented and be sure to clean the shower or tub. Don't use over the counter creams or douches while using natural remedies these can upset the balance and will have an impact on your natural treatment. No drinking alcohol or smoking these create acidic buildup in the body. These are thought to be the root cause of bv. Starting eating more green vegetables and take a vegetable supplement. Cut out as many processed foods as you can.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you may have a yeast infection you dont even have to go the doc you can go at the store and get over the counter stuff.
1322152 tn?1282511146 Basically, you pee on a stick and depending on what color the test turns, you can tell if it is a bladder infection. If you do have a bladder infection and it kills when you pee, there over the counter drugs that will take the pain away. I use a brand called Cystex. It works well and it won't turn your pee an orange color. Some other brands will turn you pee orange.
Avatar n tn BV is bacterial vaginosis (SP) Yeast infection. without going to the dr the only thing you can do is take the over the counter creams. There is a pill you can get from your dr called diflucan. you can take it along with the cream and it should clear it up. Have you had a pap lately if not you might want to think about doing so. Did a dr diagnose you with BV, because if it is this hard to get rid of your infection and you are having foreplay it may not be BV but an std.
Avatar m tn I feel helpless, which leads me to try self treating which I know is not a good idea. Other complications have happened since my original post. I got a urinary tract infection and was prescribed antibiotics. Can apple cider vinegar cause this? I had also used Tea tea oil I'm not sure which lead to the infection. - I was also prescribed fucidin cream but I'm not sure exactly what it is for? The burns or the lesions? Should I be worried about spreading the virus as I am applying the cream?
Avatar m tn OK, almost certainly you are only feeling the effects of the soap and/or alcohol. The OTC remedies you suggest will make no difference; such things can help prevent non-sexually acquired urinary tract infections in women and might make symptoms milder in women with UTI, but they have no curative effects at all. Anyway, the problem is obviously clearing up. If you're still having discomfort a week after the exposure, see a health care provider. Don't wig out over oral sex.
Avatar n tn In the mean time you can buy some over the counter Uristat to help relieve some of the pain/pressure, but it wont eradicate the infection. UTI's are not an std but are usually caused by sex. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I think they are wrong because I can feel it and I know the reason why I'm unable to get over the Candida infection is because of the presence of parasites in my system. I don't know how to get a diagnosis for this. All stool tests came back negative for parasites. My primary care doctor tried some anti biotics last 3 months and the anal itching improved and my nails started growing again and looked and felt helthier. Of course the yeast got worse but I took Diflucan.
Avatar f tn try over the counter Azo to relieve the pain
Avatar dr m tn When you see your doctor, throat redness and irritation and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that you’re in the middle of a standard upper respiratory infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.
Avatar n tn it's more severe at night.. I took an over the counter yeast medicine because I thought it was a yeast infection but it didn't help. so I went to my doctor and she said there was yeast when she did a test so she prescribed me pills to take for 3 days. those didn't help either so I'm out of ideas. what happens if it is a yeast infection but it's not going away? or could it be something else? I need help!
Avatar n tn my bladder, because I was having a urinary tract infection ALL the time! Immediately after the procedure, I knew I made the wrong choice. It made my symptoms worse. Basically, if I drink any fluid after 9pm at night, I'm screwed. Because then my bladder feels like it gets that "excited/irritable" feeling and when I start to try to calm down sitting up in bed, I feel like I have to go, even if I just came from the bathroom and just got a few drops out.
Avatar f tn It is generally prescribed for candidiasis in the throat, urinary tract, or vagina. If you took an antibiotic before the Diflucan, the bacteria that keeps the fungus in balance were killed off enough to allow the fungus to grow out of hand causing you an infection. Taking more antibiotics will make the candidiasis worse. Diflucan will reduce the fungus, but until you grow enough "good" bacteria to control the fungus and retain balance, you will keep the candidiasis.
Avatar f tn They gave me antibiotics anyway, since i was in extreme discomfort, along with some pill resembling AZO (over the counter bladder numb-er). I took the full course, but the discomfort did not go away for another week or so. When I tried to have sex again, nearly a month later, this happened all over again. I've never experienced anything like this before, and I'm really at quite a loss. It's upsetting and certainly disrupts and affects my quality of life. What could this possibly be?
