I also went to a local Herbal Chemist where thaey gave me tablets of Cranberry. I have been taking them for a weeks and drink about three litres of water daily but I see no improvements.

Can you advise me something that I can use?

Them, the first thing to do is to have a mid-stream sample of the first urine of the day analysed by a laboratory. They will tell you what the causative organism is and what the appropriate antibiotic is. If the infection returns or doesn’t clear up after taking the correct antibiotic, you will have to see an urologist as there might be something wrong with your bladder and/or kidneys. Good luck.
