    Cranberry juice, make sure it doesn't have any added sugars or high fructose corn syrup. Also lots of water. I can usually feel a UTI when in it's infant stages by either sight or smell - sorry if this is TMI - but ... if my urine is bright yellow or orange, or if it has a strong odor - I know a UTI is starting and I hit the cran juice and water pronto.

    If you are already suffering any pain, or have a problem urinating (feels you have to but not much happens), then you should see a doc for meds.

    I get these infections once in a while also. As much as it feels like you are giving birth to a set of broken dishes (isn't that a perfect analogy?), cranberry juice will not help you if you already have the infection. If you drink a glass every day (infection free, of course) it will stave off future infections. Just drink plenty of water and hang on! Edie

    Uristat will stop the burning--available OTC at your pharmacy. Sorry. UTIs are miserable.

    I second the vote for the AZO. It's been a life saver on wkends and nites when I've felt the need to urinate, but just couldn't. Relief in about 20 minutes.

    For future reference. I keep AZO or Uricalm on hand. They numb the bladder and stop the pain until you can get to the Dr. They are what the Dr. wil prescribe for the pain but are about 1/2 the prescription strength but they will work. Turns your urine bright orange.

    Baking soda and water is what my friend swears by
    One urinary tract infection home treatment often recommended is baking soda. According to suggestions, simply mix about half a teaspoon of baking soda to 8 ounces of water and it will work effectively as a UTI cure.

    Thank you all! I did get antibiotics and Azo. And, for some reason, I could not find cranberry juice! All I can find is the cocktail stuff.

    Avoid caffeine and alcohol, drink cranberry juice or get cranberry extract pills (it's the active ingredient pyridium that you want) and there is a over-the-counter product called AZO that may work if it ain't too far gone.

    Careful both types of pills create glow-in-the dark urine and they both have major stain potential. so wear the old undies.

    Also, as much as it may hurt, don't hold it in. Void when you feel it.

    I usually snuggle with a hot water bottle and a quilt.

    Hope you can get it under control.

    I have a friend that told me to start drinking black hot tea, no sugar. I had UTI so bad this last winter I was passing blood, ended up having to have two shots and lots of anti biotics, drink lots of water, my urologist told me to save my money on the cranberry juice, just water, alot there is azo pills you can get at the drugstore, they make you pea red but help relieve the pain. hope you get some relief, I would say if it gets that bad to go to the emergency room. The pain is terrible

    I always use a product that takes away all of the pain and burning right away. It is AZO. It is over the counter and you should be able to get it at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS or possibly even at the grocery in the medication department. I must tell you though that it will turn your urine orange so don't be alarmed if you use it and see orange. I always keep some on hand. It does not cure the infection, just the burning and pain. I hope you get better soon. Do not take it if you are going to have a urine test because it may mask the results. Wait until after the test.

    There's a product over the counter made by Azo that helps a great deal with the pain. It is usually in the feminine care isle. When is was available by prescription only it was called Pyridium.

    if you're near a health food store that sells tinctures, get some Uva Ursi, take frequently, one dropperful in water.
