Offering Urinary Tract Infection Treatment for Waterbury, CT, Residents & Visitors
Have you been experiencing a persistent urge to urinate, but not producing much urine? When you do urinate, have you felt a stinging, burning, or itching sensation, or noticed cloudy, discolored, or foul-smelling urine? If so, you may have a urinary tract infection (UTI). Although UTIs are commonly referred to as “bladder infections,” they can actually involve an infection in any part of the urinary system, including the bladder, kidneys, ureters, and urethra. Other symptoms of a UTI include back pain, fatigue, and an overall feeling of malaise. Women may also experience pelvic pain.
Fortunately, UTIs are generally treatable with antibiotics or another type of prescription medication. It’s important to promptly seek treatment for a UTI in order to avoid more serious long-term complications. If you’re in Waterbury, Connecticut, or a nearby community, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for UTI treatment on a walk-in basis.
What Causes UTIs?
It’s important to understand what causes UTIs so that you can do whatever you can to prevent them. UTIs occur when bacteria, usually from the large intestine, enters the urinary tract. To avoid this happening, you should make it a habit to wipe your genitals from front to back, rather than from back to front, after you’ve used the bathroom. You can also help prevent a UTI by staying hydrated, taking probiotics, using the bathroom whenever you need to, avoiding scented sanitary products, and urinating before and after engaging in sexual intercourse.
