Our urinary tract is composed of four organs: kidneys, ureters, bladder as well as urethra. When this urinary tract is infected with bacteria, we call it urinary tract infection. These bacteria can live anywhere near the urinary tract: in our digestive tract, near the vagina or around the urethra. Usually, the good bacteria present in our body kills the bad bacteria but some people seem to suffer from urinary tract infection for a fairly long time. In this article I will tell you about the symptoms of urinary tract infection and how to cure it.
Both men and women suffer from urinary tract infection; however women are more affected by it than men. Also, it is not easy to cure urinary tract infection. Women who are diabetic or pregnant can suffer from urinary tract infection more often than others.
So, what are the symptoms of urinary tract infection? If you are experiencing burning sensation when urinating, if you are having frequent urges to pass urine even when you have little urine to pass, if your urine’s color is cloudy or bloody, if you are also suffering from pain in the lower back as well as fever at the same time, then it is probable that you are suffering from urinary tract infection and you urgently need to see a doctor.
Once you are diagnosed with urinary tract infection, your doctor will most probably prescribe antibiotics for you. Antibiotics are really a good way to cure urinary tract infection as it kills the bacteria that is causing the infection. If you are allergic to any antibiotic, be sure to tell your doctor about it.
However, keep in mind that the infection might come back. While it doesn’t happen often, it has been seen with regards to some women that the infection has repeated itself even after getting ‘cured’ by antibiotics. Usually repeat infections happen only to people who have urinating problems. Those suffering from diabetes are more likely to have repeated urinary tract infections than others. The obvious cure is to prolong the use of antibiotics.
