Dear Reader,
If you are here it is because you have realized the need to act on the symptoms of cystitis and on those damn bacteria that have caused it!

Let’s get to know the remedies immediately!

First: when will the symptoms of cystitis go away?
It’s not always easy to gauge how long symptoms can linger because you must consider their severity and the remedies used to alleviate them. Symptoms should ease within a few days, as acute cystitis attacks do not exceed 7-10 days.

What are the behaviors to take to accelerate the reduction of symptoms?

 

Reduce urgent and frequent urination

The first thing we can think of in trying to suppress urinary urgency may be to reduce the intake of fluids and reduce the frequency of this annoying symptom. Although this method may work in practice, it is still essential to drink a lot in the presence of a bladder infection. The water will dilute the urine allowing the expulsion of the bacteria that cause the infection.

Sugar or caffeinated beveragesshould be avoided, especially if you are prone to developing recurrent cystitis, as they can further irritate the bladder or create an ideal environment for bacteria to reproduce.
However, certain types of foods, on the other hand, may help cleanse the bladder or mitigate irritation and the need to go to the bathroom frequently. These include brown rice, barley, potatoes, bananas, and cherries. In addition, the diet followed should take into account intestinal well-being: an adequate intake of green leafy vegetables and fiber can prevent a constipated intestine from putting further pressure on the bladder, worsening the symptom.

Reduce burning and pain during urination

Again, the number one tip is to drink lots of water so that the urine is diluted.
Diluting the urine means that the concentration of bacteria in it will be lower, making urination less unpleasant. In addition, it is advisable to go immediately to the bathroom whenever you feel the urge to pee to prevent urine from stagnating in the bladder.

Per ridurre il bruciore quando si fa pipì è importante fare attenzione anche alla buona igiene attorno al tratto urinario. Natural fragrance-free cleansers should be selected, as less gentle chemicals can only worsen the infection and kill “good” bacteria.

Symptoms of cystitis: when to go to the doctor

Cystitis is a condition that cannot be self-diagnosed based on its symptoms alone but requires that a test be performed to measure the quantity and quality of bacteria present in the urine. However, it is useful to make sure that the symptoms are related to cystitis, even before undergoing urine culture, through a test performed with a urine stick in the comfort of your home.

If you have never been a victim of urinary tract infections, the first visit to the doctor is even more important. Not only to find the most appropriate remedy but also to get to the root of the problem and investigate a way to reduce the chances of the infection becoming recurrent.

A visit to the doctor is recommended if the patient suffering from the symptoms is a child since cystitis is less common among younger people and may require a more specific therapy than the traditional one.

Even in the case of cystitis in men, a visit to a doctor could avert correlation with other conditions, such as an enlarged prostate.

If symptoms worsen, or there is no improvement within a few days, it is advisable to go back to the doctor, as urinary tract infections can expand and cause more serious problems, especially with the kidneys.

Summary

A range of symptoms often accompanies acute cystitis. Therefore, the symptoms of cystitis should not be perceived solely as an alarm that warns us of the presence of inflammation but should be the subject of treatment aimed at their gradual reduction.

  • The most common symptoms are urgency and frequency of urination, accompanied by burning and pain during urination itself.
  • Urine can be cloudy and smelly because of chemical changes caused by bacteria in the bladder.
  • There are less frequent symptoms, but they signify that the infection is worsening and possibly spreading to the kidneys.
  • Among the remedies to soothe the symptoms of cystitis, attention to what we eat and drink is essential.
  • In case of symptoms related to bacterial cystitis, it is important to contact your doctor and undergo a urine test to get a precise diagnosis and exclude, or not, the co-presence of other medical conditions.
