Home remedies for Urinary infections


Urine infection is very common now-a-days. If you feel burning or stabbing pain when you urinate, you might have a bladder infection. Bacteria growing in the bladder or urethra cause bladder infections. The urethra is the tube that takes urine out of your body.Anyone can get a bladder infection, but they’re more common in women than men or children. Bladder infections are also called urinary tract infections (UTIs). The best remedies for bladder infections include a combination of medical treatment and lifestyle adjustments.

Home remedies to treat the intensity of Infection. You can follow this under your Doctor’s guidance.


1) Drink More Water:
More the water u drink the less problem you face. Increase the amount of water you drink when you’ve got a painful UTI. Fluids perform two jobs: they empty bacteria out of your bladder, and dilute your urine.Urine is made of waste products and acids from your body. Concentrated, dark urine is more acidic and is sometimes more painful to pass when you have a bladder infection. Diluted urine is lighter in color and usually doesn’t burn as much.

2) Avoid caffeinated drinks like coffee, tea or soda. Caffeine can irritate your bladder even more when you have an infection.Chocolate, citrus, carbonation, and caffeine-these are 4 things that you should avoid as they can irritate the lining of the bladder, and potentially make it easier for bacteria to adhere.

3)Frequent Urination
Bacteria can grow in your bladder for a variety of reasons. “Holding it,” or not going to the bathroom when you need to, can increase the risk of bacteria growth. One of the best remedies and preventive tools for bladder infections is to urinate frequently.It’s especially important to urinate after having sex. Sexual activity can push bacteria deeper into the urethra of both men and women. Urinating soon after sex flushes bacteria away from your urinary tract, so it can’t settle and cause an infection

4) Apply Heat
If anti-inflammatory meds don’t work for you, try a heating pad instead. Place the pad on a towel to avoid burning yourself, and center the heat over your bladder Or, try a warm, moist compress. Low heat across your abdominal region can soothe the dull ache that is sometimes a symptom of a UTI.

5) Appropriate Dress
Moisture is a breeding ground for bacteria, in the bladder and elsewhere. Cotton underwear and loose pants or skirts promote air circulation and reduce the chances of bacteria growth. Tight jeans and other snug-fitting pants can trap moisture in your most delicate areas.
