Customer Question

Hello! I have a bladder infection (just started today). It hurts at the end of my pee, and bleeds a little. No nausea, vomiting or other pain.
I'm drinking tons of water (some with apple cider vinegar) and come pure cranberry I have on hand. How long can I do this before I should see a doctor? What are the signs?

Hi Laura. I'd say you give it three days and if the symptoms continue beyond that you'll need antibiotics

If you start to run a fever or get significant back pain you'd need to see a doctor right away

Let me know if you need more information please
