User :   Hi
User :   Good evening doctor
Doctor :   How can i help u today?
User :   My daughter is 5 years old
User :   and her mother just now informed me that my daughter was diagnoised for urine infection
Doctor :   ok
User :   The mother also noticed some white creamy discharge in my daughters inner wear
User :   her PUS cells is showing the value of 3-4
Doctor :   ok
User :   my daughter is too weak and dont eat unless we force on a daily basis
Doctor :   HAS any medications being given to her
User :   first time Lab results showed 8-10 PUS cells and upon medication (Ceff forte for 6 days)
User :   the PUS Cells gone down to 3-4 on the 7th day completion of the course
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   does she have any symptoms like fever, pain on urination , abdominal discomfort etc ?
User :   i am much worried for is she suffering for any menstrual issues or is it just urine infection
User :   no fever since couple of months
Doctor :   this is just her urinary infection
User :   but she normally suffers with fever
Doctor :   this will resolve within a few days,
User :   do i need to take her to gyno?
User :   or should i approach a PED
Doctor :   just relax and give her some probiotic medications
Doctor :   no need for all that
Doctor :   since she does not have any major symptoms just relax
Doctor :   yes, lactobacillus capsules
Doctor :   this is a normal secretion, that her genital tract has produced, or it could be due to a fungal infection, which usually occurs when her immunity is reduced , as a result of antibiotic medications
Doctor :   this is nothing to worry,
Doctor :   BIFILAC sachets , are available
User :   we normally discourage any antibiotics for normal fever or other diseases and take homeopathy....but still we have given the antibiotics to her when doctor insisted
Doctor :   they can be mixed with milk and given to her
Doctor :   please note, antibiotics are very helpful,
Doctor :   and u need not be very anxious about it
Doctor :   homeopathy is not effective to clear infections
User :   but y is that we everytime hear from all that taking antibiotics reduces immune system
Doctor :   and most common fevers (low grade) are due to viral infections, anyway, and most of the time, antibiotics might not be needed
User :   I WILL DEFINITELY TAKE THE PRESCRIBED MEDICINES BY YOU BUT DO u suggest me to take her to a PEDIATRICIAN tomorrow as well?
User :   do u also suggest me to take any other tests apart from complete urine examination
User :   Hi you there?
User :
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   Are u there ?
Doctor :   there is no need for any testing
Doctor :   since all the pus cells in the urine have come down
Doctor :   just give her crocin syrup and Bifilac, that i mentioned and she will be fine
Doctor :   In case the symptoms do not subside, then consulting a pediatrician for additional advice might be helpful
Doctor :   I hope you have understood my advice
Doctor :   Are u there /
Doctor :   ?
Doctor :   it seems that you have moved out of the page
Doctor :   please log in again if u have any other query
Doctor :   take care and bye for now
