UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) Treatment Provided at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point
Because a UTI is typically caused by bacteria, which can potentially travel throughout the body and cause complications, prompt treatment is usually required for a urinary tract infection. Antibiotics can prevent the bacteria from traveling from the bladder to the kidneys, at which point the condition can become much more serious. At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point, our board-certified physicians diagnose and treat UTIs in a state-of-the-art environment, offering a comprehensive scope of lab tests and treatments under one roof.
Because UHealth Jackson urgent care centers are open seven days a week, patients can get professional medical attention at the first signs of a UTI. It’s ideal to seek treatment within 24 hours of developing urinary tract infection symptoms, which can include:
- Burning or painful urination
- Persistent pressure or discomfort in the abdomen
- Frequent passage of small amounts of urine
- Urine with a strong odor or unusual discoloration
If a urinary tract infection makes its way to the kidneys, it can cause acute pyelonephritis, which can cause severe abdominal pain, nausea, a high fever, and/or chills. This can be serious and requires immediate treatment in an emergency room. However, it is possible to prevent a UTI from progressing to a medical emergency, and individuals who are not experiencing critical symptoms can turn to UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point for UTI treatment.
At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care, our UHealth – the University of Miami Health System physicians can conduct an on-site urinalysis to confirm a UTI diagnosis, then prescribe antibiotics and analgesics as needed. Symptoms typically clear up within a few days, although it’s important to complete a UTI treatment plan as prescribed to ensure that the infection does not come back.
