User:Hi, i am a 30 yr old woman. I have been suffering from severe cold and body aches since 2 days. I took crocin last night, and since then I am seeing blood in urine
User:Hello , do you see my question? Pls confirm
Doctor:May I know how many tablets of crocin did you take?
User:One last night
Doctor:It is unlikely that 500mg of paracetamol (crocin) is causing the blood in urine.
User:Although i didnt see any blood after this morning
Doctor:If the bleeding is persisting, I suggest you to get your urine and blood tested.
Doctor:If you are not having any more bleeding, do not be worried.
Doctor:Drink plenty of water and monitor the urine output.
User:I did give my sample today for the lab
User:Does alcohol consumption react this way?
Doctor:No, alcohol does not directly cause blood in the urine.
User:Will the report show the alcohol content?
Doctor:Presence of blood in the urine is attributed to urinary tract infection, renal stones, renal disease, bleeding disorders or antiplatelet / anticoagulant drugs and liver disease.
Doctor:Alcohol is not routinely tested in routine blood and urine tests.
Doctor:There are other tests which are done to check for alcohol levels.
Doctor:Have you followed?
User:Ok, the doc suggested i take citralka
Doctor:Citralka is helpful in the treatment of urinary tract infection.
User:Theres no more blood in the urinestream anymore
Doctor:Take them as suggested and report back to the doctor when you get the reports.
User:And dolo650 for body aches
Doctor:Please continue the drugs.
User:Ok thanks, and one last thing
User:No intercourse until the report shows no uti? Correct?
Doctor:It is preferable to avoid intercourse till confirmation of urinary tract infection; however it would be safe to use condom if you are planning.
Doctor:Do you have any other query?
User:No, thankyou
Doctor:Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor:Bye for now.
User:Appreciate your help. Thanks
