Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
The symptoms are typical of UTI.
The next step is do urine culture test.
Pending results, antibiotics can be started.
Based on the results, antibiotics can be changed if necessary.
Till then,
1. Plenty of oral fluids like water and fruit juices.
2. Cranberry juice.
should help.
Best regards
