It has gotten slowly worse until today I noticed a small amount of pus coming out of my penis. Then just recently i have started urinating blood clots
Doctor :   may i know your age please ?
User :   28
Doctor :   ok what are your present symptoms now ?
User :   the constant feeling of needing to urinate, slight burning and redish urine with tiny clots
Doctor :   ok what you have is a very typical case of urinary track infection
User :   ok
Doctor :   are you taking any medications ?
User :   no
Doctor :   ok now what you have to do is that you need to get your urine tested at a lab . in doing so it identifies the organism thats responsible for your infection
User :   ok
Doctor :   once that is done you will be prescribed antibiotics for 5- 7 days
Doctor :   and its completely curable
Doctor :   till you get that done
Doctor :   so the following
Doctor :   It is very important for your system to have a good flow of urine. This can be done by consuming plenty of water. It cleanses your body by diluting and flushing out the unwanted substance.
Doctor :   also Cranberry juice disallows bacteria to cling to the cell, which line the urinary tract. It is a great remedy to fight this infection. If you cannot have the cranberry juice directly you can mix it with apple juice to add some taste.
User :   ok i will do that thank you
Doctor :   Vitamin C prevents the bacterial growth due to the acidic environment created in the bladder and the urinary tract. It is very important to have a healthy diet which is rich in minerals and other supplements for your daily quota. You can maintain the alkaline content in urine by a rich diet of milk, fruits, and fresh vegetables.
Doctor :   A diet which consists of processed food like cheese, chocolate, dairy products should be avoided. You should also avoid spicy food, caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes which otherwise is also harmful. Avoid carbonated drinks like beer, soda or any other drink with fizz. as these things will irritate your urinary system
User :   ok thank you
Doctor :   Wearing loose-fitting and cotton clothes helps a great deal. Wearing tight undergarments and tight fitting clothes creates more room for infection
User :   ok how could i have caught this?
Doctor :   well thats about the care you can do your self
Doctor :   UTI or urinary track infection is very common
User :   ok
