Nitrofurantoin does not help all

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for your query.

I have read you query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Nitrofurantoin mainly treats UTI and not everything.

3) Please see your doctor and request for medicines to treat other STDs as well.

I hope I answered you query and addressed your concerns.

Let me know if you wish to ask any further questions. I will be glad to help you.
