I think I have a bladder or kidney infection. What can I do at home to make it go away? No money or insurance to go to the doctor

I go to pee and can only pee a tiny bit. It burned last time I peed. My stomach hurts a little bit.

  • Drink a TON of cranberry juice, noit juice coctail, or mixed juice with cranberry in it, but actual 100% cranberry juice, it is kind of hard to find but it works, and also alot of water, nothing dark untill a few days after symptoms go away.

  • You probably have a UTI. You need to drink LOTS and LOTS of cranberry juice. When you aren't drinking cranberry juice, only drink water. Cranberry juice is a natural cleanser. It can help clean out the bacteria or whatever. However, if you do not take care of the UTI, it can turn into a kidney infection which is much worse. I would try the cranberry juice for a week and if you arent having any improvement, try to go to the doctor or try calling in and seeing if they can at the very least call you in a presription. If you aren't patient of the doctor they probably won't call you in the script though.

    good luck.

  • Thank you. I need to get my husband to run to the store. Plain cranberry juice is going to be hard. If it continues after a couple of days I will go to the doctor (or hospital since they take payments)
