A urinary tract infection (UTI) happens when bacteria from the skin of the genitalia or rectal area finds its way into the urinary tract. The bacteria multiplies in the urethra or bladder causing an infection.
How do you know if you have a UTI?
Frequent urination, burning while urinating or having the urge to urinate with only little urine coming out.
Woman may also have pain in the pelvic area.
Men over 50 are at increased risk for UTI because of enlarged prostate.
Other risk factors include sexual activity and poor hygiene.
