Get a Urine Culture and Senstivity
I appreciate your concern. If i see such a patient in my clinic, I would like to rule out Urinary Tract Infection
and Renal Calculi
Since your Urine Examination showed the presence of infection and your symptoms are persisting despite Antibiotics, I would advisce you to get Urine Culture and Senstivity . It will help in identifying the organism and guide regarding antibiotic.
Meanwhile take lots of fluids and maintain good hydration.Hydration to accentuate unidirectional clearance of bacteriuria
You may require repeat course of antibiotics for 5-7 days depending upon the urine culture and senstivity.
In case you are having dysuria( painful micturation), you can get symptomatic relief from a bladder analgesic
, such as phenazopyridine
, to be used for 1-2 days.
Drinking cranberry juice (10 oz/day) or taking cranberry tablets may offer some benefit in reducing recurrent UTI
In case the symptoms persist , then you require Ultrasound
Abdomen to rule out any calculi or pylonephritis.
Hope it helps
