What medications are effective at treating an intermittent fever with UTI?
Feeling fine otherwise. Did a home urine test and was positive. Trying to cure it by herbal remedies. Should I be worried about the chills and spreading it into my kidneys? I had my first uti 5 months ago and had the chills and fever too. Thank you
It is better to take antibiotics.
Since it is your second UTI episode in such a short period and you are experiencing chills and fever intermittently. It will be better to take antibiotics (like Nitrofurantoin) to treat the infection.
Given your age and absence of other medical conditions, it is unlikely that infection will spread to kidneys.
However, antibiotics are needed to completely clear up the infection. So please be advised to follow up with your primary care provider for further evaluation and management
Hope I have answered your query.
