In brief: Not sure

I am not aware of garlic as a use for urinary tract symptoms.
There are reports that acidifying the urine by drinking things like cranberry juice may help, and maybe vitamin c can offer the same type relief.

In brief: No, won't work

You need antibiotics and drink plenty of water + don't hold back on urination.
