Backpacker - - Trailchat -

In The Top 10 Wilder­ness Mal­adies (Septem­ber, page 35), we rec­om­mended users pack Pyrid­ium to help com­bat symp­toms of a UTI. While Pyrid­ium does help con­trol pain, it won’t fix the un­der­ly­ing cause. Other over-the-counter drugs can help con­trol in­fec­tion but should only be used un­til the af­fected hiker can get ahold of a doc­tor—and pre­scrip­tion-strength an­tibi­otics.
