    If she has a urinary tract infection, then it is usually treated with antibiotics. Usually the antibiotics are oral, but for more serious cases they can be intravenous.

    A urinary tract infection is also known as a bladder infection, although it can also effect the kidneys. We are talking about bacteria getting into the bladder.

    Cranberry juice helps.

    "...a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract.
    When bacteria gets into the bladder or kidney and multiply in the urine, they may cause a UTI.  Although they cause discomfort, urinary tract infections can usually be easily treated with a short course of antibiotics.[2] Symptoms include frequent feeling and/or need to urinate, pain during urination, and cloudy urine." (THAT INFORMATION CAN FROM THE INTERNET).

    Helpful preventions are of course good personal hygiene, drinking plenty of water,and cranberry juice (actually true).

    UTI man they hurt and the older we get the worse the symptoms get...in fact once you have one you are predisposed forever...the older persons with urinary tract infctions can suffer hallucinatiuions and signs of dementia it can get bad so fast they become septic and then treatment is not as simple as take these horsepills twicea day for 7-10 days and see me (the MD) in 2 wks. UTI can sometimes be caused from baths, actually sitting down to bathe, or from sitting in one spot too long with heat and moisture causing bacteria to grow in the periarea. Chasuk is correct...the bacteria usually staph, proteus or klebsiella, travel up the ureter and settle into the bladder..if untreatd it continues to travel and gets into the kidneys causing a kidney infection...cranberry juice changes the Ph of the urine but does not prevent infections, it prevents stones...good handwashing, drinking plenty of water and going to the bathroom often, emeptying bladder fully and avoiding tub baths actually are the best ways to prevent a urinary tract infection...good luck...its 8 dys she should be much better..the drug of choice is usually bactrim DS or sulfa...make sure she takes every dose to avoid a resistant tract infection and be sure to keep the follow up appt...they will take another urine specimen to be sure its completly gone!! its no fun  tell your momma I am thinking of her as hard as mean ole nurses can and be sure to make her wash her hands sing happy birthday and drink lots of water lol love to you barbara b
