If someone has UTI, then the first line of treatment would be to administer antibiotics for UTI. A urinary tract infection, abbreviated UTI, is an infection that involves the kidneys, ureter, bladder, and/or urethra. These are the human anatomical parts of the urinary tract, where urine passes through prior to being fully eliminated from the body. Just like any part of our body, any part of the urinary system can be infected. It has been a common knowledge for most people who have UTI that the farther up in the urinary tract their infection is occurring, then the more serious their condition is.
Any child or adult who develops any classic symptoms of UTI must be seen by a doctor, preferably in the first 24 hours. There are many clinics that can test your urine for infection via a urine “dipstick” test. The results can be obtained in just a few minutes. The doctor can also ask the lab to check out your urine for culture testing, which can take a few days for the results to come back. The culture will tell the doctor what exact bacteria are causing your infection and which antibiotics for UTI would be appropriate for it.
