How to Cure a UTI

A urinary tract infection is caused by bacteria that enters the bladder after being introduced into the urinary tract via a variety of causes. A course of prescription antibiotics can sufficiently cure UTIs, but there are additional things that can be done to speed up the process and reduce the chance of future infections. Drinking plenty of water while on antibiotics will help flush the bacteria from your body. The antibiotics are necessary to prevent further infection and even more serious infections in the bloodstream or kidneys.
