How to Treat Bladder Infection | Bladder Infection Cure

What is Bladder Infection:

A bladder infection or urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract. When bacteria get into the bladder and multiply in the urine, it causes a UTI.


Bladder infections are known as cystitis or inflammation of the bladder. They are common in women but very rare in men. More than half of all women get at least one bladder infection at some time in their lives. However, a man's chance of getting cystitis increases as he ages due to in part to an increase in prostate size.

Bladder Infection Symptoms:

Symptoms of bladder infections may include:

* A burning sensation when urinating. This is the most common sign of a bladder infection.
* Frequent urge to urinate.
* Passing only small amounts of urine at a time despite the urge to urinate.
* Urine that is cloudy or bloody with a strong, foul odor.
* Pressure or cramping in the lower abdomen (usually middle) or back.
* A fever or chills may mean the infection has gone into the kidneys.
* Strong need to urinate often, even right after the bladder has been emptied.


What Causes a Bladder Infection:

The most common cause of bladder infections is infection by bacteria which have spread from the rectal area into the urethra. Approximately 80% of bladder infections are caused by Escherichia coli (E.coli). Other bacteria that may also cause bladder infection include Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, and Proteus species.
