I wish there were good home remedies for bad bacterial cystits

Dr. David :

but unfortunately there isn't

Dr. David :

you can drink cranberry juice, but this has not been proven to be able to treat bad bacterial bladder infections.

Dr. David :

your cystitis could be due to a bladder stone

Dr. David :

or even a bladder cancer.

Dr. David :

there are no home remedies for these issues.

Dr. David :

you have to see a doctor to get your urine evaluated by a urinalysis.

Dr. David :

and a urine culture.

Dr. David :

and you might even need a cystoscopy to look into your bladder.

Dr. David :

you can't do these things at home.

Dr. David :

hello?

Dr. David :

thanks

Dr. David :

you keep rating poor service.

Dr. David :
