Extended course : Sometimes an extended course of antibiotics may be necessary. Bladder irritants like caffeine and spicy foods and alcohol can cause symptoms of urinary urgency and should be avoided as well.

Yes: Bubble baths/scented shampoos/ dirty bath water all have been linked to uti's in females from toddlers to adults. These agents can trigger irritation directly or leave a soapy film on female genitals. If not well rinsed, it may remain & trigger itching/redness/drainage. Bacteria may accompany the irritation & make the short trip to the bladder. I rarely see it in males, different parts.
