The best treatment for urinary tract infection (UTI) is IV antibiotic. And for quick result the ceftriaxone injection is very really effective for children's UTI. Take 20 to 50 mg per kg. Pass IV cannula and start the dose BD twice a day after every 12 hours for 4 to 7 days. The patient will recover 100 percent. But the prophylactic treatment is avoiding or stopping spicy food intake and other foods which contains uric acid, intake of fresh juices and liquid food.
