I was diagnosed with urinary tract infection some time back and I literally could not take the pain which resulted me in seeking a doctor's antibiotic. When I was on medicines, everything was fine, till the day the antibiotic ended. The pain started immediately and I did some home remedy that helped me cure it. Drink raw lemon juice mixed with plain water. Drink one glass of plain water with 3 tablespoons of sugar. Wash your private area with warm/hot water added with salt. All will be fine after that.

I have frequent urinary tract infections and antibiotics are not helping me. I became allergic to Macrobid and just finished ciprofloxacin which gave me hives. I take cranberry twice a day as well. I heard that a low dose of vaginal estrogen may help.
