Dysuria (cont.)

Dysuria Treatment

The most common cause of dysuria is a urinary tract infection. Infections are treated with antibiotics. Based on the current pattern of urinary tract infections in your community, your health-care professional will chose the optimal medication. If a culture indicates that bacteria are present that are resistant to the initial antibiotic, your doctor might change the medication once the results of the culture are known.

If the cause of the dysuria is not infectious, your health-care professional may order further tests and treatments.
