Management and Treatment of the condition and complications if left untreated

In most cases, antibiotics are the first-line therapy for urinary tract infections. The medications given and the duration of treatment is determined by your medical condition and the type of bacteria discovered in your urine. A straightforward infection may be cured with antibiotics and medications prescribed by the doctor. UTI symptoms usually go away within a few days after commencing medication. However, you may need to continue taking antibiotics for a week or longer. Take antibiotics for the whole course. Your doctor may prescribe a shorter course of therapy, such as taking an antibiotic for one to three days, if you have an uncomplicated UTI that arises while you are otherwise healthy. However, whether this brief course of treatment is sufficient to treat your infection is dependent on your specific symptoms and medical history. Stay Hydrated Avoid Iview more
