Hematuria: The blood in the urine is usually due to the inflammation of the lining of the bladder, and if this is improving the bleeding may diminish, but whether the UTI is eliminated may depend on other parameters. If you are still symptomatic (burning, frequency of urination, suprapubic tenderness, fever, etc.) go back and see your doctor. If not, continue the course of therapy. Wish you better soon.
