Cystitis is inflammation of the bladder, and sometimes of the urethra , which can be infectious or non-infectious.
In the first case it is usually due to the colonization of the genitourinary tract by bacteria that are normally found in the faeces, such as Escherichia coli or Enterococcus f ecalis . In the case of non-infectious cystitis, the causes can be the most varied, including hormonal alterations (for example menopause), dehydration , too aggressive hygiene products or diabetes.
Typical manifestations are suprapubic pain, a sense of perineal weight, increased urge to urinate and in some cases haematuria .
Fine products can be useful both to rebalance the intestinal flora (such as Inulin or Prebiotics ) in the case of a bacterial cystitis , and products that have a more targeted action, limited to the functionality of the urinary tract .
Proper hygiene is also essential, the Intimate Cleanser is ideal in case of cystitis thanks to the antibacterial properties of the silver inside.
