It is almost certain that your daughter has another bladder and or urinary system infection. Her urine should be tested but it is also time that she was properly tested to see why she is so prone to these infections. She should have an ultrasound examination of her bladder and urinary system as well as having her urine sent to the laboratory for testing.
