The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

Can u take otc sinus cold pills n azo fot bladder infection?

No: Over the counter AZO or cold preparations may ease some of the pain/discomfort symptoms associated with a urinary tract infection but do nothing to treat the infection, which may become systemic and lead to sepsis in the long run. It is important that you see a doctor and get started on an antibiotic and have a urine culture to confirm infection and effective antibiotic regimens. ...Read more

I had what felt like a bladder infection i took the Azo pills and drank lots of water the burning went away still have pressure on bladder though???

SEE DOCTOR: Azo does not treat infections, Antibiotics do! If you still have pressure, you still have an infection. The only reason to take Azo is for short term relief until you can see a health care provider, or until the antibiotic you are taking starts working. Too many patients take Azo and end up with Kidney infections and serious Sepsis because they think Azo will cure the UTI - IT DOESN'T! ...Read more

All day I have been exhausted & tonight it burned when i peed. Having had bladder infections before I am scared that is what it is - take azo?

You have the burning without the pain nor frequency. Look at the other symptoms to make your decision - you may be able to push fluids and escape this one. If you have more symptoms, go to an urgent care clinic for a dipstick to rule out uti. ...Read more

My boyfriend made a sex toy out of caulking. I have been running a fever, no appettite, chills. At first thought i was getting a bladder infection. So started taking Azo pills. Plus have bad head aches all day long.

I : I don't know which type of caulking was used. So I have included mds material for a caulking that is frequently used. Your health shouldn't play second fiddle to sexual fun. What the two of you did was irresponsible because you didn't have any knowledge about how the caulking would effect your health before using it inside yourself. Here is the mds data: material safety data sheet msds name: pb-3 siliconized acrylic latex caulk section v - health hazard data routes of entry: entry through...Inhalation and skin most likely carcinogenicity... Ntp? N/e | iarc monographs? N/e | ohsa? No effects of overexposure inhalation: may irritate respiratory tract. Skin/eye contact: may cause irritation. Ingestion: swallowing large amounts may cause nausea, vomiting. (an unlikely route of entry) ----------------------------------------------------- material safety data sheet msds name: pb-3 siliconized acrylic latex caulk msds number: 16711-001 version number 2 msds date: sep-09-2002 ----------------------------------------------- first aid measures inhalation: if affected by inhalation, remove to fresh air. Eye contact: flush with water for at least 15 minutes, and get prompt medical attention. Skin contact: wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Ingestion: drink water, and get medical attention. --------------------------------------------------- you need to get medical attention asap. Have your boyfriend supply the emergency room with the exact type of caulking he used. If he still has the container it came from, that should be brought in. That is standard for any type of poisoning. ...Read more
