Hello,

According to the culture report, an antibiotic course prescribed. So you should be given sensitive antibiotic course for urinary tract infection (UTI). Provide your culture report for choosing specific antibiotic. Cranberry juice, orange juice should be taken more. Consult a physician for examination and get a prescription.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
