How Do I Get Relief From Urinary Tract Infection? I Am Vacationing Away From Home?
Cranberry extract capsules might help you. They are much more concentrated than sugar-sweetened cranberry juice. You take one three times a day with a full glass of water, and the acidity in the cranberries causes the bacteria in your bladder to flush away. There’s also an over-the-counter remedy for urinary burning. It doesn’t cure the infection, but it soothes the stinging and reduces the urgency. In the U.S. it’s called AZO Standard, and it contains Phenazopyridine Hydrochloride. Perhaps a pharmacist can help you find it. In the meantime drink as much water as you can. This dilutes the urine so that you won’t be quite so uncomfortable. Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon.
