I am just getting over what I assume is a stomach virus but I think I have a UTI now. How can I treat it at home?

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

Since Monday I have had diarrhea, vomiting and nausea.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Don’t think so

No I am still having nausea pretty bad and I feel like I might get sick.
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 9 months ago

Nausea is not a symptom of UTI.

This can be due to lingering virus and electrolyte problem.

Drink plenty of fluids, and Pedialyte, Gatorade and coconut water.

Probiotics too would help.

You may take Dramamine for nausea.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Following measures would be helpful for urinary symptoms / UTI;

1) Drinking plenty of fluids and water

3) Gatorade / Pedialyte

4) Plenty of fluids

5) BRAT diet; banana, rice, applesauce, toast. Vegetable broths / vegetable soups, coconut water also can help.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
