The main symptom of urethritis is one of burning and pain upon urination. This symptom is most effectively treated with the use of pain relievers, particularly the drug pyridium, which works on the urinary tract specifically. If you cannot get an immediate appointment with a health care provider, you may relieve some of the symptoms by consuming a lot of water to flush the bacteria out of your system. You can also use the over the counter remedies like AZO Standard, which contains the active ingredient phenazopyridine hydrochloride.
