Child with dark yellow urine in the morning, before going to bed. Had taken antibiotics for untreated strep virus that attacked her kidneys. Worrisome?

my five year old daughter was recently diagnosed with an untreated strep virus that attacked her kidneys. She has blood in her urine and she urinated almost every 10 minutes. She was put on anti-biotics for 10 days and it seemed better, but now she has very dark yellow almost orange urine and it occurs mostly in the morning and later in the evening when she goes to bed. otherwise it is normal colour.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your five years old daughter has UTI and has been taking antibiotics since one week,

The high coloured urine she is passing could be due to medication that she is taking or due to concentrated urine due to less water intake..

There is nothing to be worried about.

Please continue taking antibiotics and give her more water to keep her urine dilute.
