Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder, usually caused by a urine infection. Typical symptoms include pain when passing urine, an urgent need to urinate and feeling unwell, weak or feverish.
It is usually caused by not emptying your bladder properly or irritation around the urethra. Cystitis is more common in women and those who have suffered from the condition before, may be able to diagnose the condition themselves.
However, the symptoms of cystitis can also be caused by other conditions, so children and men should always see their GP.
Mild cystitis usually clears up by itself within a few days, without the need for treatment, but there are several things you can do to reduce your symptoms and feel better, such as taking over-the-counter remedies and pain relief.
Rowlands Pharmacy stock a range of cystitis relief tablets and solutions to help ease the discomfort of any symptoms, including Canesten Oasis and Numark Cystitis Relief, which relieve the symptoms in women by making urine less acidic.
