Plenty of water and fluids help in UTI, Cranberry juice too is recommended as it changes the pH of urine which kills the bacteria. But ideally she needs a culture test and a course of antibiotic according to culture report. This will eradicate the bacteria and prevent recurrence.

Also whenever there is recurrence of UTI; an ultrasound and intravenous pyelography or a CT scan is mandatory to ascertain the cause.

Kids may have abnormality in urinary tract which may be responsible for the recurrent UTI.

Was this information helpful to you? I would be glad to answer any further questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
