Urethritis is an inflammation of the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. As such, the main symptom of urethritis is pain while urinating. Urethritis is typically caused by a bacterial infection in the urethra (also known as a Urinary Tract Infection). This means that a urethritis cure can usually be achieved with antibiotic treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of urethritis?
The main symptom of urethritis is pain while urinating. Other urethritis symptoms may include: A frequent urge to urinate, difficulty starting urination, pain during sex, generalized itching or burning at the tip of the urethra, discharge from the urethra, the urethra hurts when squeezed, and blood in the urine or semen (in men).
What causes urethritis?
Most cases of urethritis are caused by bacterial infection. Bacteria around the urethra may enter the urethra causing infection. Common causes of urethritis include: E. coli and other bacteria present in stool, gonococcus, the bacteria that causes gonorrhea and is sexually transmitted, chlamydia trachomatis, the bacteria that causes chlamydia and is sexually transmitted, herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2), trichomoniasis.
What is the best treatment for urethritis?
How to treat urethritis? Urethritis typically requires antibiotic treatment to heal completely, though there are other natural remedies you can try at home. That being said, antibiotics are the primary urethritis cure. Your doctor may also prescribe medication to help combat the pain and discomfort of urinating. When you start your course of antibiotics, you should show improvement within the first couple days of administration. That being said, it is important that you make sure to take the full course of medication to ensure that the infection doesn’t return and that the urethritis treatment is effective.
Does urethritis go away on its own?
While urethritis can go away on its own, the risk of the infection getting worse and spreading to the kidneys is high. Urethritis caused by bacteria typically requires antibiotics to clear the infection and prevent recurring UTI infections. PlushCare recommends seeking medical care for urethritis. You can speak to an online doctor to get diagnosed and find out how to treat urethritis treated online by booking an appointment here.
Is urethritis always caused by an STD?
No. In fact, the leading cause of urethritis is bacterial infection, not STDs. That said, there are STDs that can cause urethritis, most commonly gonorrhea and chlamydia. Gonococcal urethritis is always caused by gonorrhea.
Is urethritis a UTI?
While directly related, urethritis and urinary tract infection (UTI) are different conditions. Urethritis refers to swelling of the urethra. A UTI is an actual infection (typically bacterial) in the urinary tract, which extends beyond the urethra. Urethritis is a common symptom of a UTI, as UTIs often cause inflammation of the urethra. Both are typically treated with antibiotics. You can get urethritis and UTI treatment online with PlushCare.
How long does it take for an inflamed urethra to heal?
How long does urethritis take to heal? After beginning antibiotic treatment, urethritis (inflamed urethra) typically begins to heal within 2-3 days. Some people feel relief within a few hours. You should continue your course of antibiotics according to the prescribing doctors instructions. Without antibiotic treatment the infection causing the swelling of the urethra may spread and symptoms may worsen. Without medical intervention symptoms can last up to 3 months and may not go away without antibiotic treatment. You can easily get prescribed antibiotics online for urethritis treatment through PlushCare.
What happens if urethritis goes untreated?
If left untreated urethritis symptoms may worsen. Additionally, the underlying infection may spread to other areas of the urinary tract, including the bladder and kidneys. Kidney and bladder infections have potential to become dangerous and can result in medical emergencies. If you are experiencing symptoms of urethritis or a UTI it is crucial you meet with a doctor right away to receive prompt treatment. An online doctor can conveniently and affordably treat your condition through a virtual appointment.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
