Cystitis is a problem common in women which is caused by a bladder infection. The most common symptoms of cystitis include: increased urge or need to urinate, and pain or stinging when passing urine. Though uncomfortable, most cases cystitis can be easily treated at home and normally only last a few days. The most common treatment are sachets that are made up into a pleasant tasting drink and taken three times a day for two days and this normally clears cystitis. You can use either Cystopurin if you like cranberry flavour or Cystocalm.
