5 year old. Abdominal pain. Urine test showed white cells. Could it be worms?

Evening, my 5yr old daughter has had abdominal pain (around the belly button area) on and off for a few months. We have had multiple visits to the doctor and have had urinary tests done 3 times in which they found white cells. Over the first 2 tests the cells increased so she has been treated for a water infection but she still complains occassionally about stomach pain...I was wondering if it could possibly be worms or what alternatives we could look for? Thank you

Thank you for your query.
I hope there is no reason to worry.
Urinary examination showing more than 10 white cells is suggestive of a urinary tract infection which should be treated with appropriate antibiotics for 10 days.Abdominal pain in that area can also be due to worms, mesenteric lymphadenopathy and chronic pancreatititis.if the pain persists it is best a have a abdominal ultrasound before offering any the meantime abdominal pain should be treated with a painkiller.hope this answers your query.Have a nice day.
