Bath bombs are a type of cosmetic product that can be added to a bath to create a fizzy, fragrant, and colorful experience. They typically contain ingredients such as baking soda, citric acid, and essential oils.
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that affects any part of the urinary system, which includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. UTIs are most commonly caused by bacteria, such as Escherichia coli (E. coli), that enter the urinary tract and multiply.
It is not likely that using bath bombs will give you a UTI. However, in some rare cases, sensitive individuals could have an allergic reaction or skin irritation to some of the ingredients in the bath bomb.
It is important to note that if you have a history of UTI, you should avoid using bath bombs or any other products that contain scents or dyes as these can cause irritation to the urethra and make you more susceptible to an infection. It is always recommended to speak with your doctor before using any new products if you have a history of UTI.
