Detected with swollen kidney in predelivery scanning, after birth increased pus cells count in urine. Remedy ?

Hello Sir, My baby was detected a swollen kidney in the pre delivery scanning, Doctor recommended us to get the scanning done every 2 months to monitor if the size of the kidney gets bigger or remains constant. Now my baby is 7 months old and still the kidney size is constant. We did a urine test for the pus cells count and it came out to be 5-6. Is there any infection to his urine or urinery track? And what could be remeddy to the swollen kidney as well? AAAAAA.

Thanks for the query.
Pus cells in the urine can be a sign of infection. This needs to be confirmed by doing a urine culture. Also UTI often has associated symptoms like fever, poor feeding etc.
From the information given it is difficult to determine the cause of swollen kidneys and hence suggest a treatment. So I suggest a regular follow up with your urologist.
Hope this helps
Good luck
