Can you use betadine scrub to clean after urinating or having a bowel movement to prevent bacteria that causes utis?

?feasibility. Frequent uti, usually a bladder infection, in women is closely related to sexual activity. Voiding urine and taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or Macrodantin after intercourse would be helpful.
Ill advised. Betadine can be irritating to sensitive membranes, including your labia and anal areas. In addition, the organisms likely to cause UTI are your normal colonic bacterial flora, and women who have frequent utis seem to colonize their perineum just prior to developing their recurrences. Soap and water may reduce the number of bacteria, but there may be other underlying issues. Discuss with doctor.
