In brief: Medicines for UTI's
Oral antibiotics or antifungal agents depending on the infection.
Certain antibiotics may be too strong for certain patients: eg women with simple bladder infections may be best treated with agents that are only excreted in the urine (such as Nitrofurantoin or monourol) to avoid subesequent vaginal yeast infections - treating a "small" infection with a howtizer may not always be the best answer.
