I had an ecoli UTI now a painful swollen urethra & burning, but normal urinalysis, is it ok to do have a cystoscopy if i feel im very swollen?

Why a cystroscopy: What indications for cystoscopy? Have you had recurrent utis or other bladder related problems. Might you have a yeast infection or an std? Have you had a urine culture done since completing treatment for uti? Am sceptical about need for cysto in a healthy 27-y-o. If really needed, wait till any swelling has settled down & urine culture is negative. (staph or strep utis can occur with normal ua). ...Read more

Urethra swollen and itchy. Monistat cream not working! Help? OTC remedies?????

Urethra swollen and itchy. Monistat cream not working! Help? OTC remedies?????

Maybe not yeast: This may or may not be a yeast infection. If yeasts, some are resistant to Monistat and other "azole" drugs. Hard to recommend an OTC remedy when the cause isn't known. Best to see a doctor, but you could try vaginal boric acid capsules, which are available OTC and can help some yeast infections. For sure see a doctor if boric acid doesn't help. Good luck! ...Read more
