Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi Manoj,

Thank you for your query.

The investigation report suggests that your daughter has urine infection. Kindly get a urine culture done on a clean catch specimen provide no antibiotic has been started. After collecting the culture sample request your doctor to prescribe an appropriate antibiotic to control the infection till the culture report arrives.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
