I am 25 years old and I have a urine infection since Sunday. It hurts a lot when I urinate and there's now a lot of blood while I urinate. What could it be? What can I take to make this go away? It's extremely painful and uncomfortable
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
You need to first confirm the diagnosis with a urine routine and once the diagnosis is confirmed you can request your general physician to write you a prescription for an antibiotic like Norfloxacin or Cotrimoxazole 500 mg to be taken twice daily for 7-10 days. You can also take cranberry juice or cranberry pills to reduce the burning and pain till then.
Hope this was helpful,
