Cystitis

Description

Cystitis is inflammation of the urinary tract caused by damage or infection. You will normally suffer with a burning sensation when passing urine and will want to pass water more often than normal.

If there is no improvement after 48 hours, ask our pharmacist for advice.

Our Advice
  • Ask your pharmacist to choose the product which is most suitable for you.
  • Drink more water to help flush the stinging urine through your body.
  • Avoid alcohol, tea and coffee which can irritate the bladder. Cranberry juice can help to treat and prevent cystitis.
  • Always wipe from front to back when you go to the toilet.
  • Wear cotton briefs and loose clothing.
  • Excessive washing of the area can worsen the symptoms; washing morning and night is advised, though.
  • All men and children should seek medical advice from their doctor.
  • Do not use bath additives in your bath water.
