How are kidney infection symptoms related to bladder infections?
Can amoxicilian cure bladder infection?
Different germs cause different infections. Different antibiotics work against different germs. If the bladder infection is caused by a germ that reacts to Amoxycillin, then yes, it will work. BUT if the germ causing the bladder infection does not respond to Amoxycillin, then it will not cure the bladder infection. Another antibiotic will then have to be used.
What causes a bladder infection?
A bladder infection is a bacterial disease. Most are caused when bacteria travel up the urethra (backward, or ascending) to the bladder. This is more common in women because of the close proximity of the urethra to the vagina and the growth of bacteria in the closed environment of the vulva. Bladder infections are caused by the bacteria E. coli.

Can you urinate when you are in labor?
Yes, you can. If you try to hold your bladder...you will probably end up with a UTI (urinary tract infection) or a bladder infection. This is caused by not flushing out your bladder enough. If you do get a bladder infection make sure to drink lots of cranberry juice to make your urine more toxic. DO NOT DRINK POP OR TEA!

What is the difference between a yeast infection and a bladder infection?
Yeast infections and bladder infection differ in terms of location. For instance, yeast infections affect the vagina while bladder infections affect the bladder and urethra. Other differences deal with symptoms. Yeast infection can cause itching while urinary tract infections cause burning sensation and frequency of urination. Both can be the result of bad hygiene and intercourse. Actually, the difference between them is that one is caused by Candida which is a yeast that lives in the body, usually in the background and then overgrows to cause yeast infections such as thrush, whilst bladder infections are caused by bacteria. Yeast infections ARE NOT caused by bad hygiene OR by intercouse, and the only bladder infection which CAN be caused by intercourse is Cystitis. It is said that cranberry juice can help prevent Cystitis although there is currently no scientific or medical proof. I hope this help clarify. If you get a yeast or bladder infection, please don't be embarrassed, it DOES NOT mean you are dirty or have poor sexual habits.
Asked in Orange Juice
Why does orange juice give me bladder infections?
Orange juice cannot cause bladder infections. Bladder infections are caused from bacteria that enter the bladder, usually via the urethra. And contrary to popular belief, cranberry juice does not cure a bladder infection. But there are other things that can mimic a bladder infection, such as Interstitial Cystitis. Sexual intercourse can also cause you to have some sypmtoms of a bladder infection if there was not adequate lubrication, which would cause urethral and vaginal irritation. If you feel you do have a bladder infection, you need to see your doctor. A bladder infection can also affect the kidneys if not treated with antibiotics. If there is no infection there are some things you can do to get relief from the discomfort. Sitting in a warm or hot tub of water relaxes the bladder muscles, which helps eliminate the painful spasms. You can also get over-the-counter medications for this. The name of one is Azo Standard. It is a bladder analgesic, and is quite effective in relieving the discomfort.
