Recurrent UTI, constipation 11632...India

A seven-year-old girl was suffering from recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) with fever and burning sensation while passing urine, for the past two years. She took prescribed antibiotics during each episode that lasted 1 to 2 weeks. However, the infection would recur every alternate month. In addition, for the past three years, she had constipation, her abdomen was hard and she passed stools only once in two days. The prescribed laxative helped but when stopped problem recurred after three months and she had to restart it.

On 2 May 2021, a scan revealed a normal urinary tract but an abnormal fecal loading in the colon. As she was free of UTI at this point in time, on 3 May, she was treated for constipation: 

#1. CC4.4 Constipation + CC10.1 Emergencies...TDS

She was advised to include a lot of fruits and fibre in her diet. She continued to take the laxative and the vibro remedy. In three days, constipation and abdominal hardness worsened and she had passed stools only once after starting the remedy. Suspecting a pullout, the practitioner advised her to suspend the remedy until she felt better. The hardness continued and the burning sensation during urination restarted. On 13 May, a urine culture showed bacteria and crystals in her urine, so the doctor again gave her antibiotics. The same day she restarted #1 and there was no pullout.

On 24 May, #1 was enhanced to cover UTI also:

#2. CC4.1 Digestion tonic + CC13.2 Kidney & Bladder infections + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC20.3 Arthritis + #1...TDS

By 6 June, constipation and abdominal hardness improved by 100% and the burning sensation by 80%. On 14 June, her doctor stopped the laxative and the antibiotics. On 1 Sept, the girl complained of anal itching and suspecting a worm infestation, #3. CC4.6 Diarrhoea...TDS was given for one month. By 6 Oct 2021, anal itching was gone and #2 was reduced to BD which she continues till date, as per her parent's choice. As of Aug 2022, there has been no recurrence.

Editor’s note: The presence of crystals in urine suggested the possibility of gout, hence CC20.3 was included in #2.
