Cranberry juice is a good idea. Also she should drink lots of water every day. Not fruit juice or tea, only water.What needs to be done is for the doctor to send a sample of her urine to the laboratory. If there are any bacteria present in her urine sample, they need to be identified and your daughter treated with the correct antibiotic. Of course this is only if this is necessary.
