Urinary tract.: Pyridium (phenazopyridine) is an agent that helps to soothe the urinary tract. It can help to relieve the burning, pain, and discomfort associated with bladder and urethral inflammation, which can occur in urinary tract infection, painful bladder syndrome, or after surgical procedures. It treats symptoms and should not be used alone if there is a urinary tract infection.
