Can Omnicef work for a UTI? If so, how long does it take for it to clear the infection?

It may

Omni-pac
Certain antibiotics are more specific for the urinary tract than omnicef, but it may work if the bacteria causing your UTI is sensitive to it. A urinalysis with reflex C&S would determine what the bacteria is and what antibiotics are sensitive to it. Most commonly, you should start feeling better in a few days. Best wishes.

How long does it take for a UTI to go away with medication?

UTI

Organisms
Time of recovery will vary with the type of UTI (lower tract vs. upper tract), the organism responsible, the appropriateness or lack thereof of the antibiotic used, the immune and anatomic integrity of the patient. The organisms will start to die quickly, but symptoms may take a day or two to begin to resolve, just as if you were bruised from trauma.

How long does it take for a uti to show up on a urine culture, if you have an infection?

It may never show up

Urinary_tract_infection
UTIs is a clinical diagnosis - that means for a physician, we rely mainly on the patient's symptoms (pain on urination, hesitancy, frequency, flank/supra pubic pain) to make a dx. In many cases, we can grow and isolate the offending organism in the lab in <24hrs.. In other cases, it is much harder to do this (eg Chlamydia, ureaplasma, mycoplasma) - sometimes resulting in a negative culture.

How long does it take for a uti to get better? I've been on medication for 2 days now still in a lot of pain don't seem to be getting any better.

Most, 1-3 days...

Pain
Most adult females' UTI will respond well to taking common antibiotics within 1-3 days after taking it; roughly, 70-80% of times, but few may be slower, but it is okay as long as slowly and surely getting better day by day, you can wait out and check urine in 2 weeks for confirmation. If not improving as expected, suspect antibiotics-resistant UTI, urine culture should be done for selecting right
