How Are Urinary Tract Infections Treated?
Urinary tract infections are treated during urgent care visits at Lawrence Family Practice Center. Your doctor will talk with you about your symptoms and health history. A urine sample will be taken that will allow us to detect the presence of bacteria that are involved with a urinary tract infection. Because UTIs are typically bacterial infections, most simple cases can be treated with a round of antibiotics. More complicated UTIs might require a longer course of antibiotics, and pain medications can also be prescribed to ease any discomfort, like burning when you urinate. In addition, be sure to drink plenty of water to help your body flush away the bacteria.
