A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a fairly common condition which occurs due to bacteria found in the urethra, making its way to the bladder. It’s often termed as a bladder infection or known as cystitis and tends to affect women more than men, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible.
However, we are unable to treat patients who have more serious, severe symptoms, such as fever, excruciating pain, vomiting, and other indications of a rapidly progressing infection. Patients with preexisting kidney problems or bladder conditions will require more specialized care and treatment or opt for urgent care clinics and hospitals.
However, straightforward infections can be treated with:
- Other antibiotics
While more complex UTIs and infections in the kidneys may require treatment using multiple antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones, including:
- Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)
- Levofloxacin (Levaquin)
- Other fluroquinolones
You may even be prescribed medications to reduce sensation by numbing the urethra and bladder to relieve pain and/or burning when urinating.
