How are UTIs treated?

Most UTIs are treated with antibiotics. It’s important to take all of the antibiotics prescribed, even if you start feeling better. Our UTI treatment in Northampton pharmacies usually involve the pharmacist asking about your symptoms and sometimes conducting a urine test. The urine test can check for bacteria and white blood cells, which are signs of infection. If appropriate, the pharmacist can initiate treatment with a course of antibiotics without the need see the GP.
