Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
recurrent urinary tract infection is a worrying problem.The commonest cause is an anatomical defect which will be detected by an intravenous urogram, DMSA scan,DTPA scan or ultrasonography. Other than that abnormal toilet habits, less water intake maybe a cause.Regular water intake,regular voiding habits and good hygiene should help.Get an advice from a good pediatric nephrologist if possible.Alkasol mixed water will take care of the burning sensation.Hope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
