A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a group of infections involving the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra. These are the structures that urine passes through before being eliminated from the body. There are a variety of home remedies (self-care measures) and other treatments available for urinary tract infections.

Doctors suggest that you can try home remedies if your symptoms are not serious. But most of time, someone should see a health-care professional first because the symptoms of a urinary tract infection can be similar to those of other conditions.


What can we do for UTI at home?
It's possible to reduce the discomfort by taking the following steps:
1. Adhere to drug treatment. Finish all antibiotic medication even if you feel better before the medication is gone. Also, you can choose to cure this disease by herbal medicine like Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. It’s a more natural and safer treatment.
2. If necessary, take a pain-relieving medication.
3. To ease pain, you can put a hot-water bottle on your abdomen.
4. Drinking plenty of water also can be one way to treat urinary tract infection. Water can promote urination which can help to rinse the urethra and reduce inflammation.
5. Pay attention to healthy diets. Avoid coffee, alcohol, and spicy foods, all of which will irritate the bladder.
6. Quit smoking. Smoking irritates the bladder and is known to cause bladder cancer.
7. Do more exercises. Enhance the body's resistance.

Some symptoms you should pay attention to.
As mentioned earlier, urinary tract infections are complicated. A person may need to be hospitalized if he or she has symptoms of pyelonephritis and any of the following:

•The conditions last long time and even tend to be much heavier.
•For those women who are pregnant or ready for pregnancy;
•The effect of outpatient antibiotic treatment is not obvious;
•Have underlying diseases that compromise the immune system (diabetes is one example) or are taking immunosuppressive medication;
•Appear serious nausea or vomiting and even unable to eat or keep anything in the stomach ;
•Had previous kidney disease before, especially pyelonephritis, within the last 30 days;
•Have a device such as a urinary catheter in place;
•Have kidney stones.

As long as the diagnosis is urethritis, whether it is gonococcal or non-gonococcal, you should cure it as early as possible. There is a danger of falling into the complications if it can’t be treated timely. Urinary tract infections can be cured if appropriate treatment measures can be taken timely.
