I do this around once per fortnight to keep a stricture open. I have to take one Co-Amoxiclav when I do it and that prevents a UTI. I would prefer not to take the anti-bac tablet as worried about dependency. I suspect that the bacteria may be inside the urethra and gets pushed up into the bladder. The infection always starts three days after using the Catheter.
Is there an antibacterial cream on the market I can use on the tip of the catheter as a further precaution? Any suggestion I will check out first with Dr of course.
