Haematuria is only a manifestation of a disease, and treatment of it would depend upon the inciting cause.
For a start, you apparently have a history of kidney stone disease, and this should be the first point of investigation. You need to have an ultrasound examination of your kidneys and bladder following which you might need to have a CT scan done for a more detailed evaluation.
There are other causes like tumours, infections, bleeding disorders which also can cause blood to appear in urine.
Hope I have been able to help you.

Hi again,
If you have any kind of pain - ache or otherwise, lateralized to one side(right side, as in your case) - there is a strong case for investigations like Ultrasound, and if required a CT scan of your KUB region. Only if there are no stones in kidneys, and if your urine shows evidence of pus cells and /or bacteria would you require antibiotics. Antibiotics without evidence of infection are not recommended, and should you require to use them empirically, you might get benefit from a class of drugs called quinolones. However, you might not be able to get them from a pharmacy without a doctor's prescription.
Guess I have been able to clarify things.
Best wishes.
