Are there home remedies for a urinary tract infection?
There are a variety of self-care measures (home remedies) and other treatments available for urinary tract infections.
- Use a hot-water bottle to ease pain.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Avoid coffee, alcohol, and spicy foods, all of which irritate the bladder.
- There are some indications that cranberry juice can help fight a urinary tract infection.
Because the symptoms of a urinary tract infection mimic those of other conditions, someone should see a health-care professional if a urinary tract infection is suspected. A urine test is needed to confirm an infection. Self-care is not recommended.
