Please help. My eight year old daughter recently had an ultrasound on her kidney's because she has had frequent urinary tract infections. The doctor called back with the results and I was told the radiologist found a small spot on her left kidney that signifies a chronic infection. The doctor told me the tissue was slightly different in that area than the rest of the kidney. He told me she needs to take an antibiotic (bactrim) for three months, and then another ultrasound to see if the medicine helps. If not, she needs to see a kidney specialist. I do not know what it could be and I would like some kind of clue about what my daughter and I could possibly be facing in the months ahead. What can cause a kidney infection and can the kidney infection be the cause of the urinary tract infections?:confused:
