Common in both children and adults, a UTI is a painful condition in which a component of the urinary system – the urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidneys – becomes infected. The infection occurs in the urethra and/or bladder in the majority of cases. Tell-tale symptoms of a UTI include:
- A burning sensation during urination
- A frequent urge to urinate, even when the bladder is empty
- Urine that is cloudy or dark
- Urine that is tinted red with blood
- Pain in the abdomen, pelvis, or lower back
It is important to promptly seek UTI treatment from a medical professional if you are displaying symptoms of this condition. If left untreated, the infection can spread to the kidneys and cause more serious complications. And while home remedies like drinking cranberry juice and placing a heating pad on your lower abdomen may temporarily help to reduce discomfort, prescription medications are almost always necessary to resolve the infection and provide lasting relief.
At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk, UTI treatment is provided by board-certified, UHealth – the University of Miami Health System physicians, never mid-level providers. UTI treatment usually begins with a simple urine test to confirm the presence of an infection. Our center is equipped with a clinical lab for fast and convenient onsite diagnostics. If a patient is diagnosed with a UTI, his or her physician will suggest an appropriate course of antibiotics based on the severity of the infection and the patient’s overall health. Pain relief is usually experienced shortly after starting antibiotics, but a physician might also prescribe medication that numbs the bladder and urethra to improve comfort during urination.
