Can Cefixime Treat All Bacteria That Cause Urinary Tract Infections?
Afternoon, whether Cefixime Trihydrate can treat all types of bacteria that cause urinary tract infections. Because this is the third antibiotic and I haven’t recovered yet. I have an ultrasound check and there is a urinary tract infection. Please inform me because I still feel pain in the lower abdomen and its effects reach my back and have difficulty sitting. Because I do not know whether each type of bacteria causes each cure. thank you
Hello Dhul Fahmi, thank you for asking.
Cefiksim is a type of broad-spectrum antibiotic. That is, cefiksim can be used to treat infections of various types of bacteria. Cefiksim is commonly used to treat ear infections, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, and several other types of infections caused by microorganisms. Basically, each type of antibiotic can be used to treat several types of bacterial infections at once. However, there are important things that must be considered.
If the infection is caused by a type of bacteria that is resistant or immune to one or more types of antibiotics, then the treatment will be more complicated. Generally the infection becomes difficult to cure, lasts longer, symptoms are more severe, and requires more expensive treatment. Bacterial resistance to antibiotics can only be determined by conducting culture and bacterial resistance tests in the lab. This test generally takes several weeks to see results. If bacteria do have resistance to certain types of antibiotics, then treatment must be adjusted to use certain antibiotics.
You can discuss this with your internist. Your doctor may have to take a sample of your urine, if a bacterial culture is needed. In addition, the doctor may also have to think about other possibilities besides urinary tract infections, such as stones or urinary tract tumors. Another thing you should pay attention to is the consumption of antibiotics as recommended, do not violate the rules, because it can increase the risk of the formation of drug resistant bacteria.
Hopefully you can find a solution soon. Regards.
