Symptoms: Burning itching some back pain

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for your question. No, you should not wait. The bacteria can still be detected in a urine sample at your docto rs office which will confirm that you have a urinary tract infection. You will likely be treated with prescription antibiotic medication in order to clear this bacteria. Please see your doctor as planned.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
