Urinary Tract Infections

Welcome to Lytham Road Pharmacy’s urinary tract infections (UTIs) service in Blackpool. Our experienced team is here to provide you with expert advice, prevention strategies, and treatment options for UTIs.

What is a UTI?

UTIs are a common and painful condition that affects the urinary tract, which includes the bladder, urethra, and kidneys. UTIs can occur in both men and women, but they are more common in women. Symptoms of UTIs include a frequent urge to urinate, painful or burning sensation while urinating, cloudy or strong-smelling urine, and lower abdominal pain.

Preventing UTIs

Prevention is key when it comes to avoiding UTIs. Here are some tips to help reduce your risk of developing a UTI:

  1. Drink plenty of water: Staying hydrated is essential to maintaining a healthy urinary tract. Drinking plenty of water can help flush out harmful bacteria and prevent infection.
  2. Urinate frequently: Holding urine for long periods can increase the risk of UTIs. Make sure to urinate frequently and completely, especially after sex.
  3. Practice good hygiene: Keep your genital area clean and dry, avoid using scented products, and wear cotton underwear to allow for air circulation.
  4. Avoid irritating products: Avoid using harsh soaps, bubble baths, and feminine hygiene sprays, which can irritate the urinary tract.

Treating UTIs

If you do develop a UTI, it’s important to seek medical attention promptly. At Lytham Road Pharmacy, our team of pharmacists can provide you with prescription medications and over-the-counter remedies to help relieve your symptoms and fight off the infection.

Our UTI treatments include antibiotics, pain relief medication, and urinary tract analgesics. Our team can also provide you with advice on how to manage your symptoms and prevent future UTIs.
