Thanks for your query.

You have nothing to worry about. Urinary tract infections are fairly common in women especially diabetic women.
Both your doctors have treated you right and well.
Your wife had urinary tract infection and was started on Ceftum by your family doctor. However, as the urine sample was given after taking antibiotic it did not show any evidence of infection.
The whitish discharge and itching your wife had suggests that she had superadded fungal infection and hence the tteatment with cansoft, candid and FAs- 3 kit.
Stay reassured; your wife has been treated well.
However, as already mentioned she has a higher chance to get these infections again and again. Manage the diabetes well and maintain good local hygiene.

Please come up with doubts, if any.

Thanks for the query.

Your wife's report certainly suggests infection. You should see your doctor and start her on antibiotic according to culture and sensitivity.

Do not worry. We would be able to treat the infection effectively.

Hope my answer is helpful to you. Do accept the answer if you do not have any further queries.
