To the ladies.what is this?infection?

Hi guys, i have this terrible burn when i urinate for the past week now, this morning blood came out when i peed. I also have this urge to urinate a hundred times a day. Now it became itchy down there but deep inside and its so uncomfortable. what could this be, as i'm not sleeping around, neither is my husband, i also dont have money now to go to a doctor. Is there maybe something i can use just to ease the discomfort, and can i just go buy sumthing at our near pharmacist?

It sounds like a bladder infection. If you are passing blood, it will need antibiotics and you will need to see a doctor for this.

Its definately a bladder infection... i suffer from that alot ( 4 or more times a year). u need antibiotics especially because it sounds like u left it for long because there was blood. there are clinical sisters that can prescribe antibiotics and it costs about R40 altogether. If u are in capetown i can let u know, not sure about other places but in the mean time, try using citrosoda 3 times a day, or a cheaper version of it. there are many. also cranberry juice (which u can get from woolworths) or taking cranberry tablets every day really helps keep the infection away. havent had one for 2 months now.

and drink lots to make sure u flush the infection out! good luck!

Sounds like you might have a bladder infection...? i would suggest going to see the doc for antibiotics?? But maybe you could speak to the pharmasist..? Canasten might help for the itchiness...?
