you should not just try antibiotics like erythromycin antibiotics without getting your urine checked.

some infections can be resistant to certain antibiotics.

you need a urine test to check for bacteria and what antibiotic it is sensitive to

the E Mycin could potentially kill bacteria in your bladder and give you a few days until you can see a doctor.

do you have cloudy urine?

have you worked on drinking more water and fluids?

when can you get into see a doctor?
