If you have cystitis that isn’t interstitial or caused by bacteria, how is it treated?

ANSWER

If you have cystitis triggered by soaps, bubble baths, and the like, it’s best to avoid those products. If you’re getting chemo or radiation, your doctor can give you pain medicine and discuss how to take in more fluids to flush out your bladder.
