    Suggest treatment for UTI

Posted on Wed, 5 Jul 2017 in Urinary and Bladder Problems
Question: For the last 24 hours or so i have had a near constant need to urinate. Every time i go some does come out but not a ton. I have no pain but a feeling of pressure in my lower abdomen below my belly button. Everything i resd online says UTI but isn't it weird for a male to get a UTI? The only drugs i currently take are Zyzal and Flonase for seasonal allergies. I had a physical last July and eveything was "normal".

I have not had sexual intercourse in over two months. The only other thing i can think of is that i have been in a lot of swimming pools lately.

Any ideas on what this could be?
