If it burns when you pee, you probably have a UTI. Nasty itching in the lady parts? It might be a yeast or bacterial vaginal infection.
PACK Pyridium for UTIs, Monistat or another antifungal if you know you’re prone to yeast infections PREVENT Keep clean (read: wet wipes), especially when romantic activities are involved. Wear quick-dry undies to prevent sweat buildup.
TREAT Staying well-hydrated can be enough to flush a UTI, but over-the-counter drugs speed things up. Positive you’ve got a yeast infection? Use an over-the-counter antifungal medicine. Not sure? See a doctor.
EVACUATE if a UTI worsens, as the infection could spread. Also hike out if you have any testicular swelling or pain; that can indicate a condition that requires serious medical attention.
