urinary tract infection and vesico-ureteric reflux

Hi all,
My son had UTI when he was 8 months old in October 2005. It was also found that he had also right vesico-ureteric reflux grade-I, but no posterior urethral valve was found during cyctoscopic examination.

My son was put under mild antibiotic (Bactrim) nearly for a year and urine test was done in every three months. Now, after one year the reflux has been completely disappeared and no UTI found.

The antibiotic has also been discontinued recently and I am afraid that the UTI may relapse. Could you please recommend a suitable homeopathic medicine for my son to prevent the relapse of UTI in future, or please let me know if there is no need to take any such preventive medicine.

Thanks in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
initially it would be good to reinstate good flora in the bowel after such lengthy antibiotic treatment. Probiotic supplements in a specific child dosage or similar and good diet.
introduce also initially cranberry juice into the daily diet to maintain a good 'environment' in bladder. Make sure plenty of water is drunk daily (not too much of course, but adequate!)...
others on this forum will add to this with any other helpful information to further a good diet and health.
You are best only using a homeopathic remedy if the proble recurs - preferably come back for help with choosing a remedy as soon as any sign occurs that there may be a problem (crying and holding stomach, problems urininating, unexplained fever etc.)
I wish you well

Thank you Erika. Yes, I am keeping an eye on his diet and giving him yogurt daily as well as enough water/fresh fruit juice.

In fact I had started to give him cranberry juice immediately after the attack. Later, when I discussed with his doctor, he told me that cranberry juice is not recommended for babies. Since then I stopped.

good - glad to hear all this positive info. how about barley juice if cranberry is not recommended. there are plenty of recipes for homemade - or you may already be trying this?
