Recurring kidney infection, doxycycline, cipro didn't work. Urine report shows WBC. Suggestions ?

hi, I recently had a kidney infection that went away then came back, and for the last couple of weeks I have been struggling with my doctors to get rid of it. doxycycline didn t work, cipro did- but I was allergic to it. Now I am having all of the symptoms for a kidney infection, but my tests are coming back with odd information- they show white blood cells and epithelial cells, but no bacteria culture. Confused!

Hi thanks for your question.
You have recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI), not controlled by usual antibiotic.
Investigate yourself for cause of recurrent UTI.
Go for ultra sound abdomen to rule out any stone.
You have not mentioned your age and sex, which is important in investigation of UTI
Go for culture sensitivity of your urine and take appropriate anti biotic.
Hope i answered your question
