Providing Urinary Tract Infection Treatment at Our Brookfield, CT, Urgent Care Center
Brookfield, Connecticut, residents and visitors can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for walk-in urinary tract infection (UTI) treatment. UTIs can affect the entire urinary system—including the urethra, ureters, bladder, and kidneys—and can produce unpleasant symptoms such as a persistent urge to urinate, a burning or itching sensation while urinating, and cloudy, discolored, or foul-smelling urine. Many people also experience back pain, fatigue, and an overall feeling of being ill.
How Are UTIs Treated?
If you’re concerned that you might have a UTI, it’s important to seek care from a medical professional rather than attempting to treat it yourself. In many instances, UTI treatment involves taking antibiotics or another type of prescription medication. Although responses vary, many patients find that the worst of their symptoms are relieved within 24 to 48 hours.
It’s also important to promptly treat UTIs, since an untreated UTI can spread to the kidneys and cause long-term complications such as recurrent infections, urethral narrowing, permanent kidney damage, and sepsis, as well as premature birth in pregnant women.
