Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
Let me first help you with some basic information on diagnosis and treatment of a UTI (urinary tract infection
). For initial suspicion of a UTI, we take into consideration the symptoms (burning while urinating, fever
, frequent urination
, increased urge to pass urine but reduced quantity of urine passed, etc.). Please note that not all symptoms need to be present to clinically suspect a UTI. Once a clinical suspicion has been raised, we follow this up with a urine analysis, which provides us with further information on a UTI, and on most occasions provides a confirmation as well. This investigation can/should also be followed up by a urine culture examination. The benefits of this investigation are that it provides a confirmation on the presence of the infection; details on the infection causing organism and the most suitable antibiotic that can be used to treat the condition.
This will ensure proper and quick relief of the UTI. Thus I request you to kindly discuss the same, and request for a urine culture examination, if it has not already been conducted.
Next coming to the boil/pimple on your nipple, this could possibly be either acne, montgomery glands (seen in women above 30 years of age' normal occurrence); or a yeast infection.
Please visit your doctor who will surely help you with this. In the meantime, please keep the area clean and apply an over-the-counter medication if accessible which contains benzoyl peroxide
or salicylic acid
. A yeast infection will require anti-fungal creams/ointments
, this can be accessible only with a prescription, thus please do visit your doctor.
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.
