Cystitis (UTI)

Cystitis is a common type of urinary tract infection (UTI). Cystitis is not usually serious or life-threatening, and mild symptoms often disappear on their own. Symptoms may include the need to urinate frequently and stinging while urinating.

We have a range of medications available on prescription that can clear cystitis.

Causes

Cystitis is more common in women than men and most infections occur when bacteria from the skin or bowel enters the bladder through the urethra. Some causes include:

  • Wiping your bottom from back to front when going to the toilet
  • Transfer of bacteria during sex
  • Having a urinary catheter 
  • Not emptying your bladder properly

Treatments

Cystitis is typically self-limiting, and symptoms can pass within a few days. Drinking plenty of fluids and taking painkillers can help to relieve symptoms. However, if symptoms do not clear on their own, antibiotics can be given to help treat the infection.

We can offer treatment for cystitis here at Pharmacy Online, so please get in contact with us, should you need antibiotics to help.

Symptoms

Symptoms are typically mild, however, can be quite uncomfortable. These usually include:

  • Dark or cloudy urine
  • Pain in the bladder
  • Pain or stinging when urinating
  • An urge to urinate frequently
  • Traces of blood in the urine
