Suggest medication for urinary tract infection

I have a uti and do not have time to get to the doctors for a perscription, however I have some flucoxacillin at home which I am given to start taking as soon as I develop an ulcer on my finger (I have scleroderma) if I start taking these will it clear the uti up? Thanks

Hello and thank you for asking Healthcaremagic.

I am Dr.Endri Katro and I will be answering at your questions.

Flucoxacillin can be used in urinary tract infections. BUT i suggest you first do some urine test to confirm the diagnosis and than consult the doctor for the prescription.

-Meanwhile have plenty of fluids.
-Fresh fruits and vegetables
-Don't hold your urine for long
-Chamomile tea or rose tea,1 cup each day

Regards

Dr.Endri Katro
