UTI returned even after taking antibiotics. Can we take Jalapenos, will it worsen UTI?

my girlfriend has has a uti for about 3wks she has taken antibodics for it and it started to get better then came back. she is trying a stew she found online where u take potatoes shavings , spinch, beets and a few other things on it but it said to use hot peppers and she used jalapenos. i was wondering if the jalapenos will make it worse.

first of all you have to make sure that it is uti. mentioning some symptoms would have been helpful. however if it is, then this is not a specific treatment for uti though it may relieve some pain. you should get a urine culture sensitivity done to find out what antibiotics she should take.
