Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Sorry for the delay in my response.

Yes, there is a need for urine culture and antibiotic sensitivity test. Unlimited pus cells indicate severe infection.

The test will identify the bacteria involved and also provides a list of antibiotics to which the bacteria would be susceptible. Placing him on such antibiotics will surely cure him.

hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
