Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The report indicates the presence of a urinary tract infection.

I suggest using a cycle of antibiotics such as Ciprofloxacin twice a day for a week.

I also suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms.

I suggest to drink liquids and especially cranberry juice.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contappct me again.

Kind regards!
