Thanks for the query.
Nephrotic syndrome is known to relapse and remit frequently.
If urine shows 3+ protein it suggests a likely relapse. We also need to rule out UTI if urine shows pus cells.
At this point it's best to see a nephrologist who may advise a renal biopsy and suggest further management.
Hope this helps
Good luck.
