Can a man take Care Cystitis Relief Oral Sachets?
Care Cystitis Relief Oral Solution are used for the relief of the symptoms of cystitis in women. Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder, which causes painful irritation and an unpleasant burning sensation when passing water. The reason cystitis is more common in women than in men is because the female urethra is shorter than the male urethra – this means bacteria can reach the bladder more easily. However, cystitis can still affect men, and particularly older men.
The first thing to know is when to get medical help. According to the NHS, men should always see a GP or go to a sexual health clinic if they’re having the symptoms of cystitis.
The same goes if you’re having the symptoms of prostatitis. However, if you suspect a kidney infection you should seek urgent medical advice.
The standard treatment for cystitis is antibiotics. Prostatitis will normally be treated with a longer course of antibiotics, as well as painkillers. A kidney infection may require treatment in a hospital – this is because kidney infections are rare in men and may be a sign of an underlying problem.
If your GP thinks your symptoms are mild and don’t require antibiotics, they might advise you to try self-help measures at home, such as:
- Taking over-the-counter painkillers
- Drinking plenty of water
- Avoiding sex until you feel better
Some people find cranberry juice and pharmacy treatments containing potassium citrate helpful when they have cystitis
