my 7 yr. old daughter was just diagnosed with a uti dr. treated with med. sulfamethoxazole - tmp didn't work then switched to cefprozil,didn't work then switched to amoxicillin , seemed to work but ended up with y. infect. treating with cream . she can't wear panties because it aggravates the area and she doesn't like the feeling. she complains her neck hurts , belly hurts , she feels like her body inside is hot but she has no fever, she was complaining the other day her back hurt.
i don't know if this has anything to do with whats going on but she in the recent past
has had a couple of episodes a few months apart where she would instantly feel sick , belly hurts then turn green , feel like passing out becomes limp, i'd give her something to drink and a cold rag and then she would be fine , i'm baffled please help i'm afraid she has something wrong and the dr. is over looking it?
Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.
From the history provided it seems that your daughter has been having recurrent episodes of UTI or cystitis (Infection of the urinary bladder). This seems likely due to the past history of recurrent episodes of UTIs which have not yet effectively treated till date.
Based on the history, you may be having some foci of infection within the urinary tract, which needs to be evaluated with a ultrasound of the abdomen.
In addition repeat urinalysis; a urine culture and antibiotic sensitivity tests will be needed.
The chances of the causative bacteria being resistant to common antibiotics cannot be ruled out. The treatment will have to be based on the antibiotic sensitivity tests.
If possible you can seek the opinion of a urologist who may be helpful.
