Urinary Tract Infection (Bladder Infection)
A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is an infection of the kidneys, bladder, ureters, or urethra, which all make up the urinary system. Most commonly, the bladder and urethra become infected. If the UTI spreads to the kidneys, serious consequences can occur.
Women have a greater risk of developing a UTI.
What are the symptoms of a urinary tract infection?
Signs and symptoms aren’t always noticeable, but when they are, they may include: frequent and strong urination, a burning sensation while urinating, small amounts of urine, cloudy urine, urine that appears red, pink, or dark (bloody), pungent urine, and pelvic pain (in women).
What are the treatments?
See your doctor so that you can be prescribed with antibiotics.* The type of medication that you’re prescribed with (and the length of treatment) will depend on the type of bacteria found in your urine, as well as any health conditions you may have.
* Individual results may vary.
