Self-care measures for cystitis
Who can use this product:
It can be used by adults, the elderly and children over 1 year. Do not use in pregnancy or breastfeeding unless your doctor has told you to do so.
If you’re a woman who has had cystitis before, or you have mild symptoms that have lasted less than 3 days, you do not necessarily need to see a GP. Cystitis is very common in women and mild cases often get better on their own.
