Urinary Tract infection

Patient: Can it be cured with no antibiotics?

 

 

Doctor: A urinary tract infection is an infection that begins in your urinary system. Your urinary system is composed of the kid neys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Any part of your urinary system can become infected, but most infections involve the lower urinary tract like the bladder and the urethra.Antibiotics are typically used to treat urinary tract infections. Which drugs are prescribed and for how long depend on your health condition and the type of bacterium found in your urine.
