Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder,in particular, its mucosa. To attribute such a disease can be directed to two directions of medicine: to urology (since the urinary system is affected) and to gynecology (the reason is most often covered in purely female problems). This phenomenon is extremely unpleasant, so you should start treatment immediately. One of the most effective means is a candle from cystitis.
Cystitis: symptoms and causes of the disease
Before starting treatment for cystitis, it is worth to learn about how this disease manifests itself, because of what it arises. Let's start with the symptoms, we list the main ones:
Now a little about the reasons, because it is from what,which caused the disease, will directly depend on his treatment. So, most often, cystitis occurs due to the entry into the bladder of pathogenic microorganisms, for example, staphylococci, chlamydia, Escherichia coli, or some other. You can get all these "mucks" both from the anus and from the vagina. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the woman's urethra is very wide and short, so that bacteria through him penetrate farther with ease. Usually trigger factors for exacerbation of cystitis are such factors as hypothermia, weakened immunity, violation of personal hygiene standards and others.
Treatment of cystitis: features, important points
What should be the treatment for cystitis? What means are most often appointed? Of course, immediately after the onset of the first symptoms, you should visit your doctor to prescribe tests and, based on their results, confirm (or refute) the diagnosis. Only after this should be prescribed a specific treatment. It is important to follow the regime. So, it is better to limit physical activity and lie down for 2-3 days. In addition, the food will differ from the usual. For example, it is better to refuse salty, spicy, roasted and canned. Consumption of dairy products should also be limited. But you need to drink as much as possible, but the usual water is best. Strong teas and coffee are contraindicated. Undoubtedly, anti-inflammatory drugs will be prescribed, after which the condition should improve after a few days. But for the complete elimination of the disease, the use should continue for at least 2 more weeks. To relieve the condition will help and a warmer, attached to the lower abdomen.
Candles - an effective tool for the treatment of cystitis
Most often, cystitis treatment impliesuse of candles, as this is the most effective method. Which ones are effective? They can be different depending on the effect and principle of action. It is worth mentioning the main types of suppositories.
- Antibacterial, that is, anti-inflammatorycandles. They can be either rectal (that is, those that are inserted into the anus) and vaginal (used for the vagina). Such drugs help with inflammation, destroy pathogenic bacteria, do not allow the infection to develop further. It is best to use NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), they do not have such a negative effect on the woman's body and her hormonal background, like steroid drugs, whose action is based on the activity of steroid hormones. One of the most effective tools of this group is Palin candles.
- Cystitis can be treated with suppositories,relieving spasms and pain. Since quite often this disease is accompanied by painful contractions of the musculature of the bladder, sometimes it is just necessary to remove the spasm. In this case, you should try anesthetic candles containing the belladonna extract. Funds based on papaverine are effective.
- Another type of remedy is drugs that improvecirculation. If there are spasms, they can affect the blood vessels, which will complicate the course of the disease and slow the healing process. So, improving blood circulation, you can eliminate the disease faster. In this case, funds are used based on papaverine or an extract of rind or seeds of red grapes.
Pros and cons of using candles: for or against?
Like any remedy, suppositories for the treatment of cystitishave their advantages and disadvantages. You should start with the pluses. So, unlike tablets, the active ingredients of candles are absorbed into the blood more quickly, as they do not pass through the liver. This makes treatment with suppositories more effective. In addition, the digestive system does not suffer, because some oral medications can cause nausea, stomach pain and other symptoms. The candles are harmless in this respect. In addition, suppositories often do not contain as many auxiliary components as tablets. Now about the shortcomings. Some substances and components of candles can be irritating to mucous membranes, which can cause itching and burning in the area of the vagina or anal opening (depending on the area of application). But such a side effect is not noted by all means. In addition, the described symptoms most often arise because of individual intolerance of certain substances.
How to use candles: basic rules and tips
For treatment to be effective, it is important to respectsimple rules. So, if rectal suppositories are used, it is best to insert them after the enema (after all, candles can have a laxative effect when the intestine is filled, which will make the treatment useless). If vaginal suppositories are used, then you need to wash yourself for the beginning. Rectal suppositories are administered after the bowel has been emptied, after insertion it is necessary to lie down for a while. Vaginal suppositories are introduced as deep as possible into the vagina, after the procedure, rest is needed.
The Importance of Timely Treatment: Dangers and Complications
Why is it important to start treatment in time? The thing is that cystitis can give complications. If the infection is not eliminated in a timely manner, it will spread to the kidneys, which is extremely dangerous. Therefore, immediately after the first manifestations of the symptoms of the disease you need to see a doctor. If the temperature rises, blood is found in the urine and severe pain begins, immediately call an ambulance.
Prevention: what to do to not get cystitis?
To not get sick, it's worth paying attention toprevention, namely: do not overcool, follow the rules of personal hygiene, give up tight clothes and monitor the timely release of the intestine and bladder. To eat, too, is right, for example, salted, fried and spicy can provoke an exacerbation of cystitis. In conclusion, you can write that cystitis is a fairly common phenomenon that most women have observed at least once in their life (sometimes it is asymptomatic and remains almost unnoticed). And if the treatment is started on time, the symptoms will disappear after a week. However, taking medications sometimes needs to take longer, so that the infection is completely eliminated.
