 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My neigbour's daughter has been suffering from a urine infection for the past few months. She has puss cells in her urine. She was given antibiotics as prescribed by the doctor. The infection was cured, but returned a month later. The doctor performed a culture test and changed the antibiotics. Once again, the infection was cured, but returned two months later. The doctor has now prescribed 'erythrocin'. Oflate, she has also started complaining of back pain and stomach ache. Why is this infection not getting cured?

Avantika (Banglore, India)

A: Your neighbour needs to get her child thoroughly investigated. Please get a renal scan done. She may require a VUR for reflux. Also, when she is on antibiotics, I hope your neighbours are making sure she doesn't stop the medication until the entire course, as prescribed by the doctor, is complete. After the present infection is cured you may need to keep checking the urine cultures once a month for six weeks. Sometimes preventive antibiotics may be needed. But all these need to be done under constant guidance from the paediatrician.

Q: My son has developed a urine infection. What is the cause? What care is to be taken?

Malik (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia )

A: It is common to get urinary infection at a young age. Please get an ultrasound examination of the kidneys done, to rule out any internal problem. If normal, get your child's urine examined every 6 months for 2 years. If your child is growing well, there is no need to worry.
