Causes Of Urinary Tract Infections That Do Not Go Away?
in the morning, I had a urinary tract infection that had not healed, I had repeated treatment and I had taken various medicines.. but until now it has not healed either. I have also done laboratory tests and urine cultures to find out which antibiotics are suitable.. Urine test results are positive for urinary tract infections. And the results of the urine culture test did not find bacteria. The treatment has been 5 months and still not getting the maximum results. Even though I was given regular and patent medicine, it healed temporarily and came back again. what other tests should I take, to cure it. Thank you
Good afternoon Alvis. Thank you for your question.
The burning sensation and/or accompanied by pain can be caused by a urinary tract infection (UTI), urinary tract stones that cause inflammation of the urinary tract or can be caused by a sexually transmitted infection (STI). In general, the symptoms of a urinary tract infection can include:
· Pain or burning sensation when urinating
· The feeling of always wanting to urinate and the feeling of not being able to hold your pee
· Pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen or waist
· Urine that is cloudy in color and sometimes mixed with blood
· Smelly urine
· Mild fever
· Body weakness
Mucous urine and sometimes pus and often accompanied by blood is one of the symptoms of inflammation of the urinary tract called urethritis. Where the cause of this disease is divided into 2, namely:
Non-gonorrhea (Chlamydia trachomatis) which has the same characteristics but urine is usually without pus or only a little.
Gonorrhea is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases and is caused by infection with the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae or gonococcus. This disease can infect both men and women but is often seen in men because there are complaints when doing BAK. The bacteria that cause this disease can attack the rectum, cervix, urethra, eyes and throat. In women, it causes gonorrhea cervicitis which can cause complaints of smelly vaginal discharge and there are pimples in the cervix
Non-gonorrhea urethritis is a urinary tract infection caused by Chlamydia trachomatis which is a sexually transmitted disease. This disease can infect both men and women but is often seen in men because there are complaints when doing BAK. The bacteria that cause this disease can attack the cervix, urethra, mouth and eyes. In women it causes vaginal discharge and is sometimes accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen (suprapubic) causing pelvic inflammatory disease.
Chlamydia bacteria can be transmitted through oral sex, vaginal anal sex and genital contact. This disease is not transmitted through toilet seats, eating utensils, sharing towels, swimming pools, sharing glasses, kissing, and hugging.
Symptoms of non-gonorrheal urethritis are:
Clear discharge can be watery or thick white fluid from the urinary tract.
Complaints can also be accompanied by fever
Burning pain when urinating
If you look at the symptoms you feel, this leads to non-gonorrhea urethritis, which can be caused by chlamydia. However, to confirm the diagnosis of the disease you are experiencing, whether gonorrhea or non-gonorrhea urethritis, you should consult a doctor or a dermatologist or gynecologist or urologist so that an immediate examination can be carried out to determine the cause. The doctor will ask for your complaints and perform a physical examination and may also perform supporting examinations such as blood tests, urine tests and urine cultures.
Therapy that can be given can be in the form of antibiotics that can be eaten (such as doxycycline, azithromycin, ofloxacin, erythromycin) which are usually given also antibiotics for gonorrhea that can be taken orally (cefixime) or injected. If this treatment is carried out properly without complications, the cure rate is quite high. You don't need to panic, just stay calm. You still have to maintain your lifestyle by:
Be faithful to your partner
Avoid sex before marriage
Avoid tight clothes and sweat
Start getting used to drinking lots of water at least 2 L / day
Maintain regular body hygiene.
Take the medicines that are given regularly and follow the instructions of the doctor who treats you
Treat your partner too
Regarding your complaint regarding pain during urination and an examination has been carried out to the doctor and an ultrasound examination has been carried out, you should continue the therapy that is being given by the doctor or if there are still complaints, you should check with your doctor, so that further examination can be carried out such as a urine examination in the laboratory or do a culture of urine and receive additional therapy to overcome your complaints.
May be useful,
