Effect Of Cockroach Contaminated Water On Potential UTIs?
I want to ask me a few days ago accidentally took a shower and had time to clean the mis part with water with a cockroach in it. My body was sore and itchy at first accompanied by a hot hospital like a burn. Then also I feel uneasy. Can it be caused by the water with the cockroach? Because after I went to the doctor I forgot the story about the problem. When I tested my urine, it was said that there was occult blood from my urine. And got isk. Can this be a factor in my isk disease. Given that the cockroach has a lot of germs in its body

UTI (urinary tract infection) can happen to anyone, especially women. Clinically, this condition is usually characterized by anyang-anyangan, namely frequent urination, small amounts of pain, and no relief. Not only that, UTIs can also make urine smell more pungent, and even contain blood. UTI sufferers may also experience fever, back pain, lower abdominal pain, muscle and joint pain, weakness, fatigue, nausea, and various other complaints.
The most common cause of UTIs is an increase in bacteria from the genitals or anus to the urinary tract. Indeed, it could be that these bacteria come from water to clean the genitals that are of bad quality, for example because they contain cockroaches in them. It could also be, this bacteria occurs due to the use of unclean underwear, hands to clean unclean genitals, or it could be due to infection from a partner during sexual intercourse. These bacteria are also likely to cause your skin to feel itchy, hot, and bumpy. Although, apart from bacteria in the water, complaints on your skin can also occur due to other causes, such as contact dermatitis, skin infections due to other causes (for example, herpes zoster, impetigo, miliaria), insect bites, and so on.
The steps you took before were right, namely by going to a doctor or an internal medicine specialist. With a direct examination, of course the doctor can evaluate your condition more comprehensively and provide the best treatment. Usually, to relieve minor UTIs, the doctor will provide treatment, for example in the form of antibiotics, pain medications, and so on according to the complaints that arise. You can first live the treatment as your doctor recommends. Usually, with proper treatment, complaints will improve within 1 to 5 days.
In addition, also do the following efforts so that complaints get better quickly:
Pay more attention to personal hygiene and your environment, including the quality of the water you use for bathing, cleaning your genitals, drinking, etc. Do not have free sex Change your underwear regularly Drink 10-12 glasses of water a day Do not use harmful chemical substances around the genitals , for example pantyliners that contain fragrances, vaginal fragrance soap, spermicides Do not get used to holding back the urge to urinate If with doctor's medication and natural steps as mentioned above your complaints still don't get better in 3-5 days, don't hesitate to check back with your doctor so that handled further yes ..
I hope this helps.
