Doctor :   Thank you for your question. Urinary tract infections are caused by a sudden infection of the urinary tract and bladder with bacteria. The only way to treat this is to take a course of prescription antibiotic medication. Please see your doctor as soon as possible to start treatment. Home remedies such as drinking copious amounts of water may help in flushing the bacteria form your bladder, however antibiotics are required. Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
