I've been given medicine for a uti, but i don't have one. I'm waiting on the culture results. What can I do so i can pee without it burning so badly?

UTI symptoms: If you have antibiotics, they should relieve your UTI pain inside of 48 hours. Physicians (p) normally start their patients with uti's on broad spectrum antibiotics (a) that work most of the time and will change them if the bacterium causing your UTI is not sensitive to the a.

Also, the spectrum of diagnosis should be broaden to include other causes of blood in the urine. Please, go back to your doctor. ...Read more
