Hello,

Your symptoms suggestive of urinary tract infection especially the possibility of kidney parenchyma infection as well.

For that empirically you can be prescribed antibiotic course like nitrofurantoin. Before that urine should be submitted for culture.

Revert back with reports once done. It's advisable to take potassium citrate syrup at night and Cranberry juice extract tablet for UTI.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician
