34 m. Was diagnosed with prostatitis. Did week of cipro (ciprofloxacin). Symptoms of increased urination and sensation in uretha continue. Did urine and blood work with nothing showing up. What should my next step be?
Uti wont go away. Taken bactrim, then cipro, (ciprofloxacin) symptoms persist. Doc is doing urine culture. Do you think probiotic or d-mannose would help me?
May help, also try: D-mannose is safe & effective for the 90% of uti's caused by e.Coli bacteria, so if you have a UTI caused by an e. Coli strain that is resistant to Bactrim & Cipro (ciprofloxacin) it will help. It is wise to take probiotics to restore normal GI flora during & after taking antibiotics but it will not help your uti. You can try herbs like uva ursi & andrographis while awaiting culture results. ...Read more

Need cultures: This could be either orchitis (infection in testicle) or epididymitis (duct from testes out). These infections can be hard to treat. You need repeat cultures to asure infection is cleared and if not cleared to diagnose what infection is present & to twhich antimicrobial is best. Sometimes a long course of antibiotis is needed to eradicate. Should have partner checked & treated if infected also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had a UTI that was cultured, the bacteria was e.Coli and wasnt resistant to many antibiotics, was given cipro (ciprofloxacin) but my symptoms are still here?
Need more info: Symptoms of urinary tract infection are non-specific. Burning is common, but can arise from yeast infections and from bacterial. Symptoms of urgency and frequency can arise from conditions other than an infection. The best doctor to diagnose is one who physically examines the area, takes serial urine cultures, ; who does not use antibiotics without good cause. Study interstitial cystitis. ...Read more
