According to senior urologist Dr. Dheeraj Gupta, UTI should not be ignored, whether it is in women or men. How serious the UTI is depends on the type of bacteria. E. coli is a common bacteria. The infection caused by it gets cured very quickly. But infections caused by antibiotic resistant bacteria require extra care and caution. Children, the elderly, cancer patients and people with low immunity should get UTI treated as soon as possible.
