Blood in Urine, so terrified, what to do?

If there's blood in one's urine, what should one do about it? I heard there's diuretic and anti-inflammatory pills to treat this, but is it true? Can anyone tell me please?

Diuretics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs do not treat hematuria which is blood in urine.you did not specify the gender as red blood cells can occur in numerous number during menses in females. You also did not mention whether there was gross blood in urine or red blood cells were found on urinalysis. The investigation should be repeated including Urian routine examination plus you're in culture and sensitivity testing The investigation should be repeated including urine routine examination plus culture and sensitivity testing If there is unexplained hematuria then a cystoscopy may be advised in consultation with a urologist
