Which antibiotics must be used to prevent blood in urine ?

my husband had a case of strep throat that went to his kidneys about a month ago. we became concerned when his urine was red (i mean really red). we were sent to a urologist and at his follow-up last wednesday, there was still blood evident in his urine. he has a ct scan scheduled for this coming friday but on thursday, he started running a high fever once again. our gp diagnosed it as strep again and gave him a stronger antibiotic. by thursday night, his urine was once again very red. it is now saturday morning, his fever is lower but his urine is still very bloody. my question is this: should i take him to the er? i am concerned with his health and would love for someone to admit him to a hospital, run all tests necessary, iv his antibiotics if needed, and get to the bottom of this. am i being ridiculous?
