Hello. I just read through your problem.
Sometimes, recurring urinary tract infections in children of this age can be due to Vesico-ureteral Reflux. this causes urine to be able to travel from the bladder up to the kidney, instead of through the urethra and out. There are screening methods available and treatment options for this.
I recommend consulting with your doctor and raising this issue. then the appropriate evaluation and treatment can be done.
