Hello there. I can understand your concern. The pus cells range which you have got is 8-10 which clearly indicates a urinary tract infection. She needs to drink lots of water, drink cranberry juice, citrus fruits and lemonade. Also do a culture and sensitivity of urine done so that it will be known which antibiotic is most active on the particular organism. Kindly consult a paediatrician for further help regarding this. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
