Urinary Tract Infection


Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) also known as Cystitis or Bladder infection is when bacteria grow

in your urinary tract and cause an infection.

Please contact Oakura Pharmacy for advice and treatment options.


The symptoms include: 

  • Pain or burning when you wee

  • You need to wee often or urgently

  • Pain in your tummy, back or side


A UTI is treated with antibiotics, and it will usually clear up within a few days.

The treatment, a three-day course of trimethoprim 300mg tablets, is available to women between the ages of 16 and 65 who are not pregnant and who have not taken a course of antibiotics within the previous six months. 


No appointment necessary.
