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
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 n tn 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.
Avatar n tn You can use the over the counter medicine like monistat. I had a yeast infection many times both pregnancies and my doctor said it was safe to use the over the counter creams.
1908228 tn?1321927555 Most likely a yeast infection. You can buy treatment over the counter for thist o clear it up, and you can also get a cream to help with the itching. You should abstain from sex until the infection is gone, because it can just irritate is even more, and your partner is also at risk of catching it.
Avatar m tn When you kill the good bacteria with antibiotics, you can get a yeast infection from the imbalance. There are over the counter medications you can try for yeast infection. If it doesn't work, then she should visit the gyn.
Avatar f tn Go to the doc.
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 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 f tn You can get medication from the doctor for treatment- or there are a few other options that are over the counter, but discuss which is best with your doctor.
Avatar f tn Yes u are more prone to infections during pregnancy & if its a yeast infection you will have discharge, itching & burning. Try not to scratch i know its hard but it will get worse.
Avatar f tn It sounds like you have a urinary tract infection. Did you buy some pills over the counter? If so, these will only take away the pain for a short time. See your Dr because if this is a UTI you may need antibiotics.
1294845 tn?1296514226 Doing an over the counter vaginal thrush treatment, as we lucky women have very little distance between the urethra and vagina. Thrush is creamy white in colour. 3. Possibly enquire about thread worm. A parasite that fits your description, and is usually in the gut and bowel, again very close to urethra. Parasites feed of their host and could make you tired. Again, if you can pull one for testing, you should get an answer very quickly. 4. Query endometriosis.
Avatar f tn I got an over the counter uti test and it came back that I had one... Weird! Lol. So I took the antibiotics for a week and took another test and it came back that my uti is gone..
Avatar f tn Hey ladies hope u can help I am starting to get a uti is there anything over the counter I can use I'm 35 weeks
Avatar f tn I'm a little confused by your question...You have a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection), yet you want to use Monistat 7? Monistat is for yeast infections, where the bacteria/yeast balance in the vagina has become diarupted and yeast has overgrown. If you have a UTI, that is a bacterial overgrowth in your urethra/bladder. Sometimes after treating a UTI with antibiotics, it can sometimes overkill the good bacteria and then cause a Yeast infection, and thus later warrant a need for Monistat.
9062499 tn?1426957962 i had a uti then it became i kidney infection that it was forming into rocks then i got really itchi down there burn to go to the bathroon so when to the doctors so comes out to be that i have a yest infection so if you were prescribe medicine takem until they are all gone or else untill your doctors tells you other wise
Avatar f tn I think you can buy it over the counter as well. Phenzazopyridine is the generic name. Ask your doctor for this or pharmacist for the over the counter version.
Avatar f tn An over the counter medication is any medication that can be purchased without a prescription "over the counter", but does not make the medication safer and needs to be taken according to the directions on the package and there is a need to be more vigilent and take into consideration individual health, the benefits versus the risks and potential interactions with any prescribed meidcations.
Avatar f tn Is it better to try something over the counter or have your doctor prescribe you to something?
Avatar f tn I recently had a UTI. I don't think it has anything to do with Hep C or treatment. It's just one of those things that people (and women especially) get a few times in their lifetime.
