Bladder Infection
Hi there,

I have had a recurrent bladder infection in the last few weeks and this time around the use of Citro-soda does not seem to be working.

I have no pain and no signs of blood in the urine, only the pressure associated with the feeling of a full bladder and the very strong smell of amonia.

I there anything other medication I can buy over the counter to try sort this out before I resort to going to the doctor?

Dear Belinda
Some pharmacies can do a urine test to see if there are pus cells in the urine - I would suggest you do this and if positive, rather get antibiotics from your doctor.
