Thanks for posting your query.

I can appreciate concern of a parent.

Please do not worry, she will fine.

Urine infection in kids is very common and if proper care is taken care than it is completely curable also.

I do not see any reason for worry as she has responded well to treatment.

Her blood counts has gone down, fever has also subsided. These are all good signs and suggest control over infection.

Due to weakness or fever it self there could be redness and swelling in eyes.

Please complete the course as advised and keep regular follow up with doctor.

In mean time along with medicines,

Please give her plenty of fluids to drink
Give her light diet
Ask her to take proper rest

I hope this helps in reliving your concern.

Please feel free to ask again if you have something more to ask.

Wishing her good health and speedy recovery.
