    I apologize for asking on the quilting section but could not see where else to post.
    I have a UTI. Does anyone know of home remedies to help till I can call the doctor tomorrow?
    Thank you in advance!

    drink a lot of water, preferably bottled spring water that you know has no bacteria in it. Do see your doctor though ASAP because it can be very serious.

    Like others have suggested...plenty of fluids. UTI's can really make you feel bad so you might want to arrange to have someone take you to the Doctor's office tomorrow, just in case you don't feel like driving. Be sure to take all the antibiotics you are prescribed, even if you feel better long before they are gone. I hope you feel better very soon.♥

    All great advice, if you can't get hold of cranberry juice try 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in a glass of water (about 8 oz of water). You might try gently washing the area in cool water (no soap) after each bathroom trip. Please get to your Dr asap...as mentioned this can have some quite nasty consequences if left untreated.

    No home remedy will do much in a day. Thank goodness you can get meds tomorrow.

    Thank you so much everyone! I do have some cranberry juice. It does say it is 27% juice. Is that the norm?
