What are the symptoms of cystitis?
The signs and symptoms of cystitis are quite easily recognisable and identifiable – you will usually experience the following:
• Pain, a burning sensation, or stinging when you pass urine
• Needing to pass urine more frequently and more urgently than you would usually
• Urine that is dark or cloudy, and potentially strong smelling
• Pain in the lower tummy area
• General feelings of unwellness, sickness, aches, and tiredness.
Symptoms may present differently in younger children. They are likely to feel pain in their tummy, need to urinate more often and more urgently, have a high temperature, feel week or irritable, and potentially have a reduced appetite or vomiting.
What should you do to lessen the symptoms of cystitis?
There are certain methods you can use to lessen the discomfort caused by cystitis. Take paracetamol or ibuprofen, stay hydrated, and hold a hot water bottle between your thighs or on the stomach to help ease irritation. Try to avoid having sex while you are recovering from cystitis. Clean the area around the genitals gently with soft, skin-sensitive soap, and ensure that when you go to the toilet you wipe from front to back to keep the affected area as clean as possible.
When should you get help with your cystitis?
If your cystitis has not improved within a 3 day period, you should see a healthcare professional. You should also seek the help of a professional if you suffer from cystitis frequently, have more severe symptoms such as blood in your urine, fever, or additional pain, or if you are unsure as to whether you have cystitis or not. You should also contact a healthcare professional if you are pregnant, a man, or if your child has symptoms.
What treatments are available?
Cystitis is a treatable condition, and you can be prescribed medications to reduce the acidity of urine to ease discomfort and irritation and make the bladder a less habitable place for the bacteria that cause the condition.
