Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infection (UTI) happens when microorganisms cause an infection in the urethra, the bladder, or the kidneys. There may be a discharge (clear or pus), pain on urination, painful spasm of the bladder, or back pain and high fever if the infection makes it into the kidneys. These all require a doctor’s attention sooner rather than later. Urinary tract infections are typically treated with antibiotics.
