No recommendation.: Utis are bacterial infections that are treated with antibiotics; to recommend anything else would be unreasonable. That being said, most utis will actually self-clear, but the ones that don't will run the risk of ascending to the kidneys and causing pyelonephritis, a much more severe infection. Get it treated!

Drink lots of fluids: Significant portion of utis resolve spontaneously. Drink lots of fluids and cranberry juice or tablets. You may use over the counter bladder analgesics like azo. However if symptoms perstited or gotten worse contact you healthcare provider right away.
