Brief Answer:
Need to rule out Cause if any.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

See, if there is a reason behind UTI then we need to find it and treat it.
Most common causes being Diabetes, stones in renal tract.
If no apparent causes then life style changes includes drinking plenty of water. Avoid public toilets.
Keep your private area clean and dry.
If you are sexually active the wash genitals properly after sex.
You can increase consumption of citrus fruits in diet like Apple, Grapefruit and oranges.
You can also take lemon water twice a daily.

Hope I have answered your query.
