In brief: Antibiotics
You should be treated with an antibiotic for a urinary tract infection.
The choice of antibiotic can vary and you should see your doctor first.

In brief: Depends
For a 1st time UTI in young girl, Amoxicillin may work.
In older women bactrim/septra may be first drug used. In those with recurrent uti's a urine culture & sensitivity may be needed to determine which antibiotic will work best. In all cases, drinking plenty of fluids (water, cranberry juice) helps. If there is significant pain, sometimes a urinary tract analgesic (pyridium) is given.

In brief: UTI fast tx
There is no "fast treatment".
If the antibiotics are given intravenously or intramuscularly they act faster that the oral ones. Antibiotics ( depending upon the sensitivity in the culture) for minimum of three to seven days for a non complicated urinary tract infection in a lady. Males may require antibiotics for several weeks ( two or three) to a month.
