Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Your daughter has responded very well to the antibiotics. Kindly wait for 2 more days and repeat urine analysis. If she still has the more than 20 pus cells, then it should be investigated with urine culture again. But, I believe that the urine culture should be normal by 2 more days as the antibiotics are working.

Thank you.
