Brief Answer: Follows, Detailed Answer: Hello there, Nice to meet you here, Yes, you can do on your regular day to day work until you get your culture report, and urinary tract infection are contingent when gastro intestinal bacteria accidentally enters the urinary tract. Visit your treating physician with your culture report, he will start on with appropriate antibiotics as per your culture sensitivity. Meanwhile try to drink plenty of water, and consume crane berry juice and fruits rich in vitamin C [like Amla], which naturally helps in reducing the infection. Personal hygiene is most important to prevent UTI. So, clean area around the penis [tip of the urethra] with soap and water which helps in preventing most of the infection . Hope helped you, Kindly rate the answer if you are satisfied. Feel free to contact me again anytime for any further clarification. Take care. dr.surendiran Gaj.
