Uti infection over the counter treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Uti infection over the counter treatment


Avatar f tn Just go the health department and get antibiotics because nothing over the counter will be a fix for a uti. Be safe rather than sorry.
Avatar f tn It could be a yeast infection/UTI and i say that b/c i have actually had one the past 4 days.
Avatar n tn I had a uti and my doctor prescribed me medicene and I took it and now my doctor said the medicene caused a yeast infection. Does anyone know any over the counter medicenes that are safe to use ? Im 20 weeks pregnant.
Avatar n tn Ask your doc to prescribe a cream everytime you get antibiotics and/or see your chemist for the above cream as I mentioned as it is an over the counter thing. Best of luck, it is truly an unpleasant thing to have and so close to delivery I bet you wish it wasnt here!
Avatar f tn Have you had any lyme tests or seen a ' lyme literate ' doc.? Have you ever taken any over-the - counter 'worm' treatment - the one that springs to mind is 'mebendazol' - it is used to treat different species of worm - not sure on all the details - it is given to children as well as adults - perhaps ask your doc. I guess you have researched - vitamin/mineral - deficiency. Here is a list of poss. symptoms of 'parasites' Inability to gain/lose weight - chronic candida - yeast inf.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn So yogurt is out right now. I tried the Uricalm over the counter , it help me get some sleep the problem is I took it again in the middle of the night without food. Warning: never do that, got sick to my stomach. I'm just stopping all medication and hopefully the urologist will be able to help me. My stomach can't take anymore . It's really an awful painful infection to have be happy you've never had one. I only had this once before and it cleared quickly.
Avatar n tn He reluctantly gave me some anitbiotics which had no effect so I got some 'over the counter' cystitis medication which also did not help. I still have the same problem and do not know what to do I avoid going out coz i'm worried I won't get to the loo in time or i'll have a sudden urgency to go to the loo. Please can anyone help me?
Avatar m tn Ive had many and once i didnt get treatment for 24 hours after the UTI showed symptoms and it was awful (tho that was a very bad infection) Hope you get sorted, bladder infections are something i'd never wish on anyone lol
1142155 tn?1261770432 Is it possible that your UTI is not competely resolving each time and this is the same ongoing infection? Don't forget that a simple UTI can cause problems with our MS. Bladder infections are quite common, that is why MS Neuros know how to treat them. Good luck with the rebif and stay in touch.
Avatar f tn What's the fastest way to relieve the itch and pain from a yeast infection when the medicine isn't helping. I had a uti and they have me amoxicillin and I always get yeast infections with antibiotics bits its really bothering me and I can't take it anymore!!!

Avatar n tn I've been having this exact problems I'm female 17 and during the summer I had a terrible uti which I got during a two week holiday to Italy. Because I was in a foreign country I couldn't get any antibiotics and had it in me for two weeks and was using some over the counter sachets which weren't strong enough.
1253197 tn?1331212710 I think the AZO product in the drug store over the counter does the same thing but it can't hurt to ask the doc about this. I think it might be a sulfur but I am not sure. Maybe someone else can chime in who has more experience with drug names. Good luck.
608005 tn?1234189746 If it's really a bacterial infection and not a yeast infection, then the meds won't cure the infection. Give the meds that u used a couple days to work. Usually you won't see complete relief the night after using the meds. If your symptoms persist, you're gonna have to get a prescription from the doc to get rid of the infection. Because of the holidays coming up next week, maybe you should call today to get an appt just in case.
Avatar n tn I am waiting for my health insurance to kick in so would like to avoid a doctor visit for a week or two. Is there any over the counter remedies I can try until that point? The pubic rash looks similar to pictures I've looked up of Folliculitis but would that make sence for the red dots on the head of my penis too? Any advice would be appreciated. Unfortunately a doctor visit is out of the question until I have health insurance.
Avatar m tn Throughout this process I have considered to apply the stretching methods to correct the phimosis problem, but first I need to clear the yeast infection and the puffy foreskin or it won't work. Yes, the white thing is normal apparently thank you for go into detail. Addressing the last part of your reply, when you say apply "Canesten or Neosporin" could I use Polysporin instead? That's what I have only and if so where do I apply on the glans or on the foreskin this time.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn so what kind of treatment do they give for an UTI? can it be treated over the counter?
Avatar f tn For the past few weeks, I have been battling a "female infection" with over the counter products. I am able to get rid of it, only to have it come right back. My wbc and anc are both low, and have been now, for awhile. Is this probably the reason why? Should I keep battling with otc products, or do you think it is time for a dr to intervene? I am just so tired of docs, I was trying to battle this myself. Thanks for all your feedback!!
Avatar f tn So, I was glad I followed the doctor's orders. Okay, so then you get symptoms of yeast infection. Well, you can treat that over the counter. If that is your only symptom at this point, I'd do that. Then you don't have ANY doctor's bills. Maybe you can make it until Jan. when you have insurance that way.
Avatar f tn Use an over the counter treatment kit for relief within about 3 days. If you want to eliminate or at least minimize your trouble with yeast overgrowth, you will need to alter your diet to mostly eliminate sugars and white flour products. Focus on lots of veggies, eggs, meat, the more garlic the better. Go light on fruit. Yeast feeds on all sugars, even the sugars created as your body digests sweet fruits and refined carbs (sugar, and highly refined foods).
Avatar m tn and it didn't go away. another dr said use over the counter yeast treatment meds (miconazole) (btw don't use generic) and it seemed to go away. Then months later itchinesss returned, I used over the counter again, it didn't go away. Then I had pain during sex. I took antibiotics from my dr (who didn't know what it was, but said use antibiotics anyway). then the itching left and the pain left after a month or two.
Avatar n tn 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!!
Avatar n tn The next day after i stopped taking the antibiotics it appeared that I had a yeast infection. I bought the over the counter miconazole hoping that this all was just a bad yeast infection but that made my symptoms worse. I ended up in the ER that night with, according to the doctors, side effects from the antibiotics (keflex). I was now at the end of my period and it seemed like things were actually kind of improving.
Avatar f tn I am a bit better if I cut down on sugar but the rash never completely goes away, I do have a Steroid cream that I put on the other parts of my body with the rash but for the vaginal and anal area I have found an over the counter medication that will bring a few hours of relief. You will have to ask the Pharmacist for it as it is not on the shelf. They may even have to order for you. This was my first non script miracle. See what you think and I hope it may help you. Calmoseptine www.
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?
Avatar n tn 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.
