A UTI stands for urinary tract infection, also called a water infection. Cystitis, which means bladder infection, is the most common type, but you can also have a UTI in your kidneys or urethra. UTIs are caused by bacteria and are relatively common. They’re more common in women than men, and as you get older. There may be symptoms such as frequent and / or painful pee, burning sensation, fever, bad smell and back or lower tummy pain. UTI may go away on its own but most people will need antibiotics. If you think you have UTI symptoms, you should speak to your doctor to discuss treatment options. If your symptoms continue after treatment, you should seek medical advice to rule out anything else that might be causing the problem.
