I have baby girl of 4 months old .
we have given her vaccinations of Hep B2,Rotavirus,DPT and IPV on 1-FEB-2013 .
then she had a fever which last for four days.
so did urine test and PUS CELL Count is : 55-60 HPF .
Doctor prescribed Curam Oral suspension (Amoxycillin & potassium clavulanate) for six days.
did again urine test and PUS CELL count is :15-20 HPF
again we continue for 12 days same medicine and then also PUS cell count coming lie 140-160.
then we did urine culture and got bactrarial infection cause by
so given amikacin for 7 days injection.
after three days we did urine test again and still PUS cell count is : 8-10 .
can you please help here why this PUS cell coming every time?
other than that baby does not have any fever,vomiting ,feeding is also good .
Though still suggestive of residual infection, an 8-10 cells/ HPF is considerably low as compared to the previous tests and suggests infection control. The antibiotics may be continued for a few more days and the tests re-performed till the infection is completely obliterated. In case the infection recurs, an antibiotic sensitivity testing may be performed. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with her treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.
