I have burning in the bladder and frequently feel the need to urinate

The most common of bladder infections is bacterial Cystitis. This is usually transmitted from the bowel to the urethra. The bacteria that are responsible for this infection are called coliform bacteria. This bacteria causes inflammation inside the bladder, which leads to severe infection.

This ailment can affect anyone of any age. However this most commonly occurs in women. The infection usually creates a frequent urge to urinate. However every time you go to the toilet, not much urine is passed. With the urine, there is also a burning sensation. If the infection is acute, blood can also appear in the urine. The urine appears to be cloudy and gives off a pretty strong smell. There is a constant pain in the lower abdomen and the infection is usually accompanied with fever and chills.

There are many great home remedies that can help you to fight this infection. A burning bladder can also be treated with these home remedies.

  • Increase your water intake. Your body needs to be well hydrated. Water is also needed to ward off any infection that might occur in the body. Water is also required by the body to flush out toxins and remove any bacteria that might have clung on to the lining of the bladder.
  • To remove the bacteria from the body, crush some parsley leaves and boil them. Strain this concoction and drink it. This helps to relieve the burning sensation in the bladder. Spinach contains many vitamins and minerals that cure the burning sensations in the bladder. Spinach is also a good source of potassium and nitrates that act as diuretics and help in cleansing the kidneys and bladder.
  • If you do not want to eat spinach, you can mix some spinach juice with some coconut water. This also helps in relieving the bladder infection. The juice of radish leaves is also a good cure for bladder infections.
  • If your urine contains blood, it means that the infection has become severe. Take some lemon to relieve yourself. It not only stops the bleeding but also helps in curing the burning sensation. The juice of cucumber or cranberries also helps in curing the burning sensations and bladder infection.

If these home remedies do not provide any relief, or if the burning sensation or desire to urinate frequently persists, it is imperative to consult a licensed medical practitioner for further advice.
