Brief Answer: Urine culture and sensitivity test suggested Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing in to us. Your mother might be having an antibiotic resistant urinary infection or the antibiotics are not as sensitive to kill all the bacterial strains if its a mixed infection. I suggest you get her urine sample culture and sensitivity test done and then take antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor in required doses. Also tell her to drink enough fluids and juices and not hold urine for long durations. Hope your query is answered. Do write back if you have any doubts. Regards, Dr.Vivek
