I think I have a UTI, anyone know if there is an otc Med to clear it up, or if cranberry pills really work? I just don't have the best health care and don't wanna go to the docs if i don't have to! TIA

Yes, AZO works. Turns your pee super yellow, though!

 UTI is a bacterial infection probably best to see Dr for antibiotics

No you need an antibiotic before it gets worse. Azo will work to numb the pain but that's it you have to get some meds.

Azo works there's also a baking soda or powder mix you can make and drink. You'll have to Google it.

See a doc, then take cranberry pills on top of antibiotics.

eat lots of fresh garlic cloves. A clove or two every few hours for a few days. They work like antibiotics

I dont mess around with infections. If I think I have an infection I go to the DR and get the right prescriptions. Infections can easily spread though your body if not treated right and could shut down some of your organs causing death! Dont mean to scare you, but with or with out insurance if you think you have an infection you should get checked out
