UTI Relief

Not to say that you’ll necessarily get a UTI, but in a bacteria-ridden environment like a Spring Break vacay, it’s better to be prepared. Nothing puts a damper on your week of fun in the sun like cutting it short to take care of a burning sensation in your lady parts. Before you rush to urgent care, take Cystex—the leading urinary health brand can ease your pain while you’re waiting for a doctor’s appointment. The Cystex Urinary Pain Relief Tablets have a dual-action formula that helps relieve discomfort associated with UTIs while simultaneously reducing chances of the infection spreading.
