Thanks for query,
As you have got kidney infection often, you require investigations.
Go for urine and blood check up.
Go for ultra sound.
After reports go for treatment accordingly.
Take plenty of water.
Avoid fried and junk food.
Ok and bye.

Thanks for posting your query.

Recurrence of the infection would be due to renal calculi.

I suggest you to consult a Urologist.

X-ray KUB region would recognize calculi in urinary system.

Treatment would be planned according to the size and location of calculus.

Also always drink plenty of water.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
