Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Your symptoms seem to related to a urinary tract infection.
Pyridium is a pain killer and would treat the pain you are experiencing in your urinary tract but would not have an effect on the infection.It does not kill or affect bacteria

You need antibiotic therapy to completely resolve your symptoms. In addition to the antibiotics , you can use alot of fluids , this would help to flush the urinary system.

I hope this helps
