My niece has been suffering from urine infection. They found puss cells in her urine four months ago. She was on antibiotics treatment, and it went well but recently infection returned. Doctor repeated tests and change treatment, but same thing again happened. Why can’t she get rid of the infection?

Are you sure that your niece is thoroughly examined? She has to be on antibiotics for entire course that doctor prescribed. Suggest to her parents to take her on renal scan and she may also require VUR for reflux. Maybe she needs to take preventive antibiotics, and during the period when is fine it will be helpful if she check her urine of possible puss cells in it.

Hello, 

As galen said, urinary infections are, in most cases, supposed to be completely treatable with antibiotics. They need to be taken for the full course and on time and it also might be necessary to take them for longer time, if infection is persistent. But, the thing about urinary tract infections is that they tend to come back, partly because the bacteria which cause it are normally present in the bowels.

So, it might also help to try out some of the home remedies to strengthen your nieces immune system and prevent infection from recurring. The most common remedies user for UTI prevention is cranberry juice or cranberry supplements, because cranberry also has some mild antibiotic properties that help fight off the bacteria.
