I'm currently on dicloxacillin for a breast infection. Will that also help with a uti?

In brief: Probably not

There are different bacteria for skin and urinary tract infections.
Typically Doxycycline will not treat bacteria for a uti.

In brief: Diclox =a penicillin

It may help with your symptoms and infection, depending on the bug that is causing the uti.
If not better within a couple of days, then i'd say it's not working and you might need a different antibiotic.
