Today, I had an allergic reaction to cranberry juice. The only reason I was drinking cranberry juice was to help with a bladder infection. Now I'm covered in what looks like a rash and peeing constantly. FML

bro its called anti biotics

Cranberry Juice is usually more of a "preventative" measure. And if you have a bladder infection, see a doctor because the chances of juice helping THAT drastically is very minimal. Maybe a little bit, but you'd be better off with medication.

Ha. You can't pop cherries.

^ lolwut? looks like urine trouble

Originality Fail #30.

Lol at #62

30, I'm hereby banning you from saying that ever again. -.-

You can't ban him from saying it. He's a troll; it's what they do.

53: I hereby banish you from FML, be gone.

i want chips!

49 - you're number 49, so how the fuck can you possibly lol at 62? OP I'm sorry, I was once at a party with a guy a liked and all of a sudden I started throwing up, then later I started throwing up AND shitting at the same time! never again...

I'm also exhausted emotionally, or wait, I mean physically.

Too much information.

Sarcasm? ^

uh oh but you need to go get antibiotics for your infection cranberry juice doesn't work op

#1- coincidentally, I can't poop cherries...

what a wonderful combination

your choices : bladder infection or ugly rash

Cranberry juice doesn't cure bladder infections, antibiotics do.

cranberry juice doesn't cure it but it does help clear it up and help prevent more from coming - be smart and research shit before you decide to post "facts"

Fact: everything on FML is true all other sites like CNN and foxnews use the magic 8 ball to tell if it's a fact or not

No pic no proof.

46- so true :)

I'm a girl, obviously I do know that. I know cranberry helps. I'm just saying cranberry juice can't cure it. I said that because the person said choose between a bladder infection or cranberry juice. You don't need it for curing a UTI, it's just helpful. There is alternatives though like water, cranberry supplements which I find very helpful. Some doctors even prescribe pain medicine. I know what I'm talking about. I've experienced this stuff. So don't be a dick. I don't need research.

u tell him girl.

64 shouldn't be researching guys, seriously. She needs to be back in the kitchen making a sammich for a man. Get off the computer, you have civic duties such as cleaning to attend to.

27- Op or #5 never said anything about using cranberry juice to 'cure' said infection.

cldean24 4

73 - #5 said bladder infection or ugly rash. meaning they had to choose between one or the other. It was implied that they meant have a bladder infection or drink cranberry juice to cure the infection because the juice is what caused the rash. Learn to read between the lines, stupid.

How does being a girl suddenly make you the expert on this? Go to med school, then try talking

87- Yeah, you got me. One more thing though, make sure YOU get antibiotics for whatever crawled up your ass... stupid.

46, I'm so glad we got that straight. Now I can sleep tonight.

89- because girls can get them way more easier than guys can. especially after theyve had sex. what my doctors have told me is always empty your bladder before or after sex, drink water every day or drink a glass of pure cranberry juice at least 3 times a week if youve had a uti beforehand just to be safe and if youre sexually active. ive had four of them already in a year timeframe.

Actually cranberry juice only helps prevent because it keeps the bladder walls slick so bacteria can't cling to it, causing an infection. Drinking it after the fact won't help.

I'll weigh in here, because everybody seems to think he or she is an expert in the field, but no one has any actual facts to back it up. Here's the scoop from an ACTUAL expert: cranberry juice neither treats nor prevents urinary tract infections. A recent study (double blind, placebo) showed the rate of UTI was the same if you drink cranberry juice or not. Can we lay this to rest now? All you self-proclaimed "experts" are giving me a goddamned headache.

actually new research is showing that there's no difference between those who drink cranberry juice for a uti and those who drink other fruit juices during uti- the cranberry doesn't actually do anything. just drink plenty, avoid sugar and flush the system according to the directions on the antibiotics.

I never said I was some expert. I've just have experienced this stuff. No need to call me stupid. Being a girl meaning your more susceptible to a bladder infection meaning I have experienced it. Not that I'm some expert.

and 87 that's exactly what I said. So maybe you need to learn to read the actual lines.

Im NOT an expert!!! Wooooo! LOL :D

147: If thats to me, my mom died of cancer 4 months ago. So fail on your part! Ahole!

ouch that must hurt

hurts when he pees?

the rash and the pee thing

Sounds like a fun time.

Just a nice life tip, if the bladder infection is minor enough, just drink a tablespoon of baking soda in a tall glass of water. It tastes pretty horrible, but it will clear up the infection pretty quickly. However, if you're peeing blood or feeling an ache in your back, where your kidney is, go see a doctor.

sounds like a double ended knife
