She needs to be investigated for urine culture again,go for USG abdomen for kidney ureter and bladder studies. May require DTPA and DMSA scan along with MCUG. You can consult Pediatric nephrologist rather than adult nephrologist. Antibiotics needs to be given for atleat 14days. Repeat urine culture before stopping antibiotic.
