Symptoms of UTI are burning and pain while passing urine, increase frequency of urination and hesitancy and feeling of incomplete mictuirition, sometimes fever with chills. Apart from what Dr. Sarika has adviced, the course of treatment should be completed and timely taken as adviced. Repeat urine culture to be done after one week of last dose of antibiotic, till it is sterile.
