Acidic Juice: Acidic juice can help, but it is not necessarily a cure. Why not see your physician for an antibiotic and resolve this issue ?

UTI and cranberry: It was long thought that cranberry juice would help prevent and maybe even treat urinary tract infection (UTI). Unfortunately, more recent research and data review show that it doesn't work at all -- not natural juice, not concentrate, nothing. And cranberries themselves have no effect either. If you think you have a UTI, see a doctor for diagnosis and antibiotic prescription.
