Short course of antibiotics is treatment of choice for utis which in South Africa likely requires prescription.. Also drink lots of water which will help to flush out some of bacteria causing the infection.

You need to see your MD or Urologist who will do urine tests too. In the meantime drink water. If symptoms are bad go to urgent care
