Cranberry juice, it contains a natural antibiotic (I think). Also a little bicarb of soda in a glass of water makes your wee less acid (or is it less alkeline?) so it doesn't hurt so much. Other than that I've just drunk gallons of water in the past.

be careful drinking cranberry juice as most carton you can buy are full of sugar which will make cystitus worse. bicarb of soda is good. the sachets you buy in the chemist are fairly harmless and work quite quickly.

good luck , you have my sympathy, it is miserable.

drink lots of water. i've never been a fan of cranberry juice but i've drunk plenty of rosehip tea and that helps too.
