Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder. In most cases, this inflammation is caused by a bacterial infection and is a type of urinary tract infection (UTI). A bladder infection can be quite painful and debilitating, and can also lead to more serious problems if it travels up the kidneys.
Symptoms and signs of cystitis
Imperative (sudden and very strong) urge to urinate
False urge to urinate
Burning when urinating
Frequent urination, small amounts of urine
Blood in the urine (hematuria)
Cloudy urine and/or urine with a strong bad odor
Discomfort in the pelvic area
Feeling of pressure in the lower abdomen
Subfebrile body temperature (from 37 to 38 degrees)
In young children, the sudden onset of daytime (urinary incontinence) may also be a sign of a urinary tract infection (UTI).
Treatment of cystitis
In acute cystitis, patients need bed rest. A plentiful drink and diet are prescribed with the exception of spicy and salty foods, alcoholic beverages. It is useful to use decoctions of herbs (kidney tea, bearberry, etc.), which have a diuretic effect. To reduce pain, warm baths, heating pads are used. With a pronounced pain, you can use drugs that relieve spasm of the muscles of the bladder (drotaverine, papaverine). Antibacterial treatment prescribed by a doctor is also used.
Treatment of chronic cystitis is aimed primarily at restoring the normal flow of urine (treatment of prostate adenoma, narrowing of the urethra, etc.). Be sure to identify and treat all foci of infection in the body (for example, chronic tonsillitis). Antibacterial treatment for chronic cystitis is carried out only after urine culture, identification of the causative agent of infection and its sensitivity to antibiotics.
