Azo makes a pill that will take away the pain but not the infection, you can take it until you go to the doc, I have one right now also

Hey... I used to get urinary tract infection all the time I was in the doctors office almost every two weeks, and once I ended up in the hospital for 3 days.. But I kept gettin them and my parents bill was sky-rocket. I did some research and was trying home remidies, this might sound weird but trust me it works wonders, take alka-seltzer (use the directions it says on the box) it will start feeling better almost right away. It helps clear the infection...And drink a lot of cranberry juice.. I was drinking up to a half a gallon a day...

Trust me it works...I have been in the doctors once in the last year with it...Instead of every other week....

Bust of luck.. Smile
