Is it common to not suffer a bladder inf for a long time and then suddenly have 3 episodes in the space of 3 months? is this normal or should i see a specialist? if so what is the specialist called for this problem is it a urologist? When do i worry? i keep gettin antibiotics for the inf and then 4 wks later its back and i do finish the course and drink diluted cranberry juice and or water 2l a day, wipe from front to back, shower no bath, no deodorants etc harsh soap. Can soap cause this?

Dear Miri

Thank you for visiting

I suggest that you doctor have a MC&S of your urine done. It is possible that the infection is reoccurring because the bacteria is resistant to the anti-biotics that are being prescribed to you. When having the analysis of your urine done, it will indicate what anti-biotic should be used to kill the infection.

Once this has been done and there is no improvement, you can make an appointment with an urologist.
