UTI and Bladder Infection Treatment via Telemedicine

UTI, or urinary tract infection, is an infection that can start from the urethra (tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside) enters the bladder, and then ascends the ureters (hollow tubes connecting the bladder to the kidneys), and enter the kidneys. The infection occurs either in the bladder or the kidneys. The infection is caused by bacteria. When bacteria from the urethra enters the bladder, this uti is termed “cystitis.” When the bacteria reaches the kidneys, this uti is also known as “pyelonephritis.” 

Both types of UTIs are more common in women than men. Both types of infections require treatment with antibiotics. 

Future UTI may be prevented by drinking more water, voiding on time, voiding after intercourse, and wiping appropriately (front to back) after urinating. There is not enough evidence to indicate cranberry juice will help prevent UTIs. 

Symptoms of a uti may include pain with urination, voiding more frequently, an urgent desire to avoid, fever, nausea or vomiting, and back pain. Back pain with fever, nausea, and vomiting is more commonly seen in pyelonephritis. 

Call your doctor now or seek immediate medical care if: 

  • Symptoms such as fever, chills, nausea, or vomiting get worse or appear for the first time. 
  • You have new pain in your back just below your rib cage. This is called flank pain. 
  • There is new blood or pus in your urine.
