AZO Emergency Kit Review

I had the opportunity to review some AZO products recently. AZO products are designed to help women maintain a healthy urinary tract and to be prepared in case of a urinary tract infection. AZO is the #1 trusted, over-the-counter pain relief brand. Now they have products that will help you diagnose a urinary tract infection, treat urinary tract iinfection symptoms and get back to a healthy urinary tract.

I was so impressed with the kit I was sent! It’s a great idea for all women to have these products on hand. Simply go to the store purchase what you need and make your own kit so you are not caught unprepared when those awful symptoms hit! I had no idea that I could get all of these products at my local grocery store. The kit I was sent contains AZO Test Strips, AZO Standard, AZO Itch Relief topical analgesic cream, AZO Itch Relief Analgesic Wipes, AZO Cranberry, and AZO Yeast.

Before I tell you a little bit about each of those products I wanted to fill you in on some statistics.

*After the flu and the common cold, urinary tract infections are the most common medical complaint among women age 18+, and it has been estimated that up to 60% of women will experience the unbearable pain and discomfort of a UTI at least once during their lives.

*Approximately 20% of those who experience one UTI will have another.

* 75% of women will experience at least one yeast infection in their lives. And half of all women will have more than one.

*Feminine or vaginal itching can be caused by anything from a yeast infection to hormonal changes, excess perspiration or even tight clothing. Typically, the cause is vaginitis, which is the inflammation or infection caused by bacteria, yeast, viruses, chemicals or tight clothing. It’s very common, with most women experiencing some form of vaginitis at least once in their lifetime.

Those are some pretty high statistics. Having experienced both I could have saved myself a lot of pain and discomfort if I had, had these products on hand while I waited for a doctor’s appointment.

I was very impressed with the information on all of the products included. First up are the AZO Test Strips. There are three in a box. Maybe you aren’t sure it’s a UTI yet because it’s just in the beginning stages. So you don’t want to go pay a co-pay to find out at the doctors office. Luckily you have a box of test strips at home. The same type of strips your doctor does the test with! You test yourself and if it’s positive you call the doctor and get some faster relief. Not a bad thing to have on hand in my opinion!

I remember my first UTI. The receptionist at the doctor’s office made me wait for two weeks because I was a new patient. I was in agony! I was also a little naïve and didn’t realize I should have either gone to instacare or called the office back and made a bigger case of my symptoms. By the time I got in there I had a kidney infection. These strips would have saved me a lot of pain.

Next up is the AZO Standard Maximum. You’ve figured out you have a UTI but you can’t be seen until this afternoon. Start taking the Standard Max. 2 tablets three times a day for two days should help provide some relief right where it hurts. These tablets contain the number one ingredient prescribed by doctors and recommended by pharmacists specifically for urinary discomfort. That’s something acetaminophen or ibuprofen can’t do.

AZO Itch Relief – Topical Analgesic Cream has seven skin soothing ingredients. Provides fast and long lasting itch relief. This is in cream forms. There is also the AZO Itch Relief Analgesic Wipes that have the same ingredients just on a flushable wipe for easier application.

AZO Cranberry has 50 tables. It’s three times more potent than before. There is no sugar added and it has probiotics and vitamin C to help protect your urinary tract. Take these as a preventative for good urinary tract health.

AZO Yeast contains a fast homeopathic yeast infection treatment to naturally relieve symptoms of vaginal yeast infections and prevent future infections. There are sixty tablets in a box and it is the suggested dose if you have an infection is one table three times daily to treat symptoms. To prevent infections AZO recommends taking one tablet a day.

Honestly I won’t be without a kit like this ever again. The benefits of having these products on hand far out way any possible up front purchase cost. It wouldn’t be hard to make a kit like the one I reviewed and one lucky reader will win. Simply get a pretty makeup bag, buy the products and store someplace you won’t forget. It would also be easy to take it with you when you travel. When you need it, it will be ready to provide you fast relief.

I was given an emergency kit for review purposes. I was not financially compensated for this review and this is my honest opinion.
