Urinary Tract Infection

Urinary tract infections are infections that occur in any part along the urinary tract, such as the bladder, kidneys, ureters or urethra. Urinary tract infections are mainly caused by bacteria which enter the urinary tract through the urethra. The infections mainly involve the bladder and the urethra, sometimes also spread to the kidneys.

 

Antibiotic treatment is the mainstay for managing urinary tract infections. The choice of medication and length of treatment depend on severity of the disease, type of infection, and type of bacteria causing the infection.

泌尿道感染

泌尿道感染是指泌尿道包括膀胱、腎臟、輸尿管或尿道的任何部位受到感染。泌尿道感染主要是由細菌通過尿道進入泌尿道引起的。受感染的部位主要是膀胱和尿道,有時還會蔓延到腎臟。

 

治療泌尿道感染主要使用抗生素藥物。藥物的選擇和治療時間的長短取決於疾病的嚴重程度、感染類型和引致感染的細菌類型。
