Patient :I am traveling and I believe I have a UTI. I would have to travel very far to see a doctor and I won't be able to see my Primary Care Physician in my home country for another 2 months. However, I do not need a prescription for antibiotics where I am. I may be able to get something like Ciprofloxacin at a pharmacy. Should I take the antibiotics and see if the infection clears?
Symptoms: foul odor from urine, occasional mild burning sensation while urinating, and darker colored urine
