Urinary Tract Infection

A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is an infection in any part of your urinary system, which includes your kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra.
Cranberry juice is often promoted to prevent or treat UTIs. The red berry contains tannin that might prevent E. coli bacteria -- the most common cause of urinary tract infections -- from sticking to the walls of your bladder, where they can cause an infection. But research hasn’t found that it does much to reduce infections.
How to Prevent UTI Re-Infection?
Following some tips can help you avoid getting another UTI:
  • Empty your bladder often as soon as you feel the need to pee; don't rush, and be sure you've emptied your bladder completely. 
  • Wipe from front to back after you use the toilet. 
  • Drink lots of water. Choose showers over baths. 
  • Stay away from feminine hygiene sprays, scented douches, and scented bath products; they'll only increase irritation. 
  • Keep your genital area dry by wearing cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothes. Don’t wear tight jeans and nylon underwear; they can trap moisture, creating the perfect environment for bacteria growth.
