Sometimes a man don’t take enough drug as his doctor told, also he drinks wine or eats spicy food, these can also damage the effect of drugs. Also a man with UTI may only use one antibiotic and ignore the mixed infection, like untreated amalgamative Chlamydia trachomatis or mycoplasma infection, these can make a UTI last for a long time without being cured totally commonly.

The suitable amount should be more than 3000cc for a day, a man should empties his bladder at least every 3-4 hours, also he shouldn’t eat irritating food, drink wine or coffee. The acidity of urine can be kept by eating more fruits with vitamin C such as orange, lemon and plum. At the same time it is better to take a shower than a sitz bath.
