Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

You should have urine analysis and urine culture test done. This tests can identify the bacteria causing the infection and check its sensitivity to antibiotics.

As you have been on antibiotics recently, please also start probiotic intake to rebuild good intestinal bacteria. Lac of them can be the bad taste in your mouth.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
