Answers provided are for informational use only and do not confer patient-provider relationship. Please let me introduce myself. My name is***** and I will do whatever I can to try to help you.
To make yourself more comfortable, you can drink plenty of fluids including 100% cranberry juice, and take a bladder anesthetic from the pharmacy. Some brand names are ***** ***** Azo. They contain a dye that coats the lining of the bladder making the infection less painful. This can be taken for a maximum of two days. However, the only thing that will cure a bladder infection is an antibiotic which your primary medical provider will need to prescribe for you.
Please let me know if you have questions.
All the best,
