My son has been suffering with pain while urinating. He is a 6 month old baby boy. Here a local doctor did a urine test and said as Escherichia coli urinary tract infections. What is the proper treatment for this?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
As per the report, your child is having urinary tract infection, which is resistant to many oral antibiotics.
The only oral antibiotic it is sensitive to is Co-trimoxazole that is Septran. You can start a course of Septran for at least seven days and repeat a urine test after seven days.
The other option is start IV therapy with injection Ceftriaxone and Amikacin and repeat the test after five days. IV therapy is more effective than oral.
There is nothing to panic about as this is most commonly seen in children. It is not a serious condition and it is curable. So, relax and start the treatment.
