Can recurrent uti/ antibiotic use cause ic? Is it normal to have slight pain/sensitivity during urination after treatment?
IC is not repeat UTI: Lower uti's are usually responsive to antibiotics, but recurrences are common.

Have a UTI due to salmonella and tried 2 6-days antibiotics treatments but it came back for the 3rd time in 3 weeks. should i worry? i heard it's rare
Yes you should: Salmonella does not usually cause UTIs at least in the U.S. The fact that you have a Salmonella infection that is resistant to the antibiotics that have been tried is worrisome. Make sure that the sample of urine you next give is a clean mid-stream collection and is sent to a good lab and is tested for culture and sensitivity to an tibiotics. Then take them scrupolously.
