    If you have visible blood in your urine, do not attempt to treat yourself with home remedies. See a medical professional without delay.

    If you have a urinary tract infection, you will take antibiotics for 3-14 days, depending on what part of the urinary tract is infected.

    If you have kidney stones, be sure to drink plenty of liquids to help pass the stones and prevent other stones from forming. You may need to take pain relievers.

  • cont.

    Kidney stones: For most cases of kidney stones, you will be told to drink plenty of water and other fluids and to take pain relievers.

    Most stones will pass through urinary system by themselves. In certain instances, more extensive measures may be required.

    One form of therapy, called extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, uses sound waves to crush the stones. The smaller pieces can then pass through more easily, though some pain will remain.

    Another form of therapy uses cystoscopy to find the stone in the ureter and then to grab and remove it with a small scoop.
