How can a urinary tract infection be treated?

I've been on medication for a UTI, but it doesn't seem to be clearing it up. It's persisting on and off for months. The doctor said my lab results just showed a trace of infection, and didn't really want to prescribe another round of the meds...but they did, and though it helped for a couple of days, the burning and urgency is back. Still have 3 days of pills to go. Just concerned that there could be something more serious.

Hi
Thanks for trusting healthcaremagic for your health problems.

Can you mention which drug has been given till now for your UTI?
Without knowing it, I can not suggest further medication.
Till then my advice is to drink plenty of water in a day. This is the only advice I can give you based on your description.

Regards
Dr. Hiren
