The most important and common risk factor for UTIs in girls is antibiotic therapy, which may disrupt the normal periurethral flora and fosters the growth of uropathogenic bacteria. Voiding dysfunction is another possible cause. It is important to identify and treat the voiding dysfunction. Imaging evaluation of the urinary tract following a UTI may be needed based on the child's clinical presentation and on clinical judgment. In young girls, recurrent urinary tract infections can be an indication of a urinary tract abnormality, such as vesicoureteral reflux. It is best to get her investigated and rule out the possible causes. Keep me posted.
Best wishes and regards!
