In brief: Antibiotics at home

Only true remedy for a UTI is antibiotics.
You should also increase fluid consumption and not withhold urination. Cranberry juice and vitamin c do not cure utis although they may reduce the risk of future utis once your UTI has been cured by antibiotics. Good luck.

In brief: No

Some women say cranberry juice and other home remedies help with their symptoms but a UTI is a bacterial infection that can only be cured with an antibiotic from your physician.

Sometimes UTIs can go away on their own without antibiotics. However, there are some instances that definitely require treatment, including pregnant ladies, diabetics, and elderly patients.

In brief: Multipollen extract

U can try multipollen extract it helps with dysuria - but if symptoms persists more than 72 hours need antibiotics.
