A friend of mine has a daughter with an embedded infection since the age of 3 under the care of Prof. She is currently on trimethoprim and doing amazingly well to the extent she will be coming off abs shortly.

To help with your granddaughter, I would purchase some d-mannose powder. Give you grandaughter half a teaspoon every 2 hours for the first 2 days. She MUST also have a night time dose and i know this is difficult with a little one, but you will have to wake her to do this. Having a night time dose is the only way the infection will truly clear. Thru the night she will need DM every 4 hours no longer than 5 hours. After the first 2 days drop the dose down to every 3 hours. I would keep her on this for another five days and still maintain the night time dose. If she has an e-coli infection this should clear it. And you will know if it is working with in a few hours. When she first starts the dm it will cause wind and loose stools as it pushes the ecoli from everywhere in the body including the bowel so keep her close to a toilet, but don't worry this will settle after a few days. I hope she feels better soon it is very upsetting to see a child in pain with this.

Hope this helps.

Kate as long as it's a gram negative bug D Mannose will help. I assume she has been checked for thrush as well in case the stinging is being caused by that.

Co amox can cause tummy upset so watch her carefully. Do hope they can culture something as you say you don't want this dragging on.
