Urinary Tract Infections: UTI treatment online

UTI treatment online

Learn about how UTIs can be diagnosed and treated with a virtual appointment.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a common and often uncomfortable condition caused by microbes (bacteria) entering the urinary tract causing symptoms such as pain or burning during urination, frequent urges to urinate, and abdominal pain. UTIs can be diagnosed and treated virtually by a doctor.

 

If you suspect that you have a UTI, it’s important to seek medical attention. This is especially important if you are pregnant, have a history of kidney infections, or have other underlying health conditions.

 

One of the benefits of virtual healthcare is that you can receive a diagnosis and treatment plan from the comfort of your own home. Here’s what you can expect when treating a UTI virtually:

 

  1. Schedule an appointment by clicking ‘See a doctor’ on the Rocket Doctor website.
  2. Prepare for the appointment. Make sure you have a private, quiet space to conduct the appointment and have a list of your symptoms, as well as any relevant medical history, to hand.
  3. During the appointment, the doctor will ask you about your symptoms and medical history. They may also ask you to provide a urine sample for testing. If the healthcare provider confirms that you have a UTI, they will prescribe a course of antibiotics. These can be sent directly to a nearby pharmacy for you to collect.
  4. Follow the treatment plan as directed. It’s important to take all of the prescribed medication as directed and to finish the entire course, even if you start feeling better.
  5. Follow up with the doctor if directed. This may involve scheduling additional virtual appointments.

 

While UTIs can be uncomfortable, they can be effectively treated quickly. With Rocket Doctor, you can receive a diagnosis and treatment plan from the comfort of your own home, without the need to travel to a walk-in clinic and sit in a waiting room, potentially exposing yourself to other harmful infections.

 

In addition to seeking medical attention, there are also steps you can take to prevent UTIs. These include:

 

  1. Drinking plenty of water to flush bacteria out of the urinary system
  2. Urinating frequently to help prevent bacteria from accumulating in the urinary system
  3. Wiping front to back after using the bathroom to prevent bacteria from entering the urinary system
  4. Avoiding use of scented soaps or other products in the genital area
  5. Wearing cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothing to allow for proper ventilation and to prevent moisture buildup

 

In summary, UTIs can be treated virtually with the help of a physician. By following the treatment plan and taking preventive measures, you can effectively manage this condition and reduce your risk of future UTIs.
