We just got back from visiting our grandsons up in Seattle. We try to make this trip at least once a year so we can see our grandsons in their own environment. This trip we got to participate in our oldest grandson’s pre-school graduation
The younger grandson was sick with a cold when we arrived, and I bet you can’t guess: we ended up coming down with it too. We didn’t want health issues interfering with our limited grandson time. Thank heaven for the over-the-counter medicine we could take to relieve our symptoms and allow us to still be fully present in spite of a nasty cold.
There are other minor health ailments that if not treated right away can get worse and put a damper on special events, if not cancel them all together. One of those health issues is a urinary tract infection (UTI). Like a cold, UTI symptoms are easily detected:
- Pain and/or burning when urinating
- Feeling like you have to urinate often
- Passing small amounts of urine
- Cloudy or bloody urine that has a strong smell
- Pelvic pain or pressure and cramping in the lower back or abdomen
- Fever or chills
Urinary tract infections can only be cured by antibiotics prescribed by a physician, so it’s important to see a doctor as soon as symptoms are detected. However, if you are on vacation or visiting family, it isn’t exactly convenient to get in to a doctor’s office right away to be treated for this health situation. The good news is, women don’t have to suffer through until they can be seen. There is an over-the-counter urinary pain medicine that provides fast, temporary relief of pain, burning, urgency, and frequency of urination caused by a UTI.
URISTAT® Pain Relief Tablets contain phenazopyridine HCI which is the #1 doctor recommended over the counter ingredient for fast, temporary relief of UTI pain. URISTAT® Pain Relief Tablets are made from the same company that makes MONISTAT®. The tablets can be taken as soon as UTI symptoms are experienced and while you are taking a prescribed antibiotic. There are 12 tablets in each URISTAT® Relief PAK™ along with a UTI test strip which can help confirm a UTI before you meet with your doctor. URISTAT®UTI Test Strips test for white blood cells (Leukocytes) and Nitrite in urine, which can indicate the presence of a UTI. URISTAT® products are available in drugstores and online retailers across the country including Walmart, Walgreens, Kmart, Rite Aid, Kinney Drugs, and drugstore.com. So no matter where your family is or where your vacation takes you, you can find immediate relief.
I don’t want anything — especially health issues — getting in the way of our few and far between grandson visits. Being prepared and knowing how to treat what can pop up at the most inopportune times—like a bladder infection – just makes sense.
