dr leslie,two weeks ago my urinary infection cleared up.i am still  uraniting every hour.before I saw my urologist my penis was sore but urine culture showed no infection.i don't know if large prostate.think I should wait a while as it might be another they give low dose log term for frequent infections from large prostate


Antibiotic prophylaxis is not usually given fir UTIs due to an enlarged prostate. This only leads to more resistant infections. recommended treatment is therapy for the enlarged prostate, either medication or surgery. We also check for other related causes like stones.
