Anyone with a dd with recurrent uti

Hi my dd is 5 she has had recurrent uti's for around 11 months now. We are under the Urology department at the hospital and have been since July this year. Most recent scan showed scarring in her left kidney and a thicker than normal bladder wall. We are waiting for a dsma scan but dd has to be 6 months clear of infection before it can be booked in. Her most recent infection was last week, she has trimeclophorin (sp) every night to try and prevent the infections which she has taken since July. She constantly bed wets and has accidents daily as she doesn't always feel the need to go until it's too late. I'm just wondering if anyone else has a child with the same or similar as I don't know anyone in rl with it. If anyone has any advice it would be so helpful
We make sure dd wipes front to back
Has plenty of fluids etc but at school she doesn't always tell the teacher if she has a little accident in her knickers and now she has thrush that's very sore and bleeding.
Sorry this is long and thanks in advance

Hi my dd had recurrent utis. She was so used to the discomfort she wouldn't realise she had an infection, it was only when she was sick we'd know. She had investigations and was diagnosed with a duplex kidney. She had a daily dose of antibiotics for years & a get out of class card (to allow her to use the school toilet as leaving during lesson time is frowned upon as they get older) to ensure she didn't hold onto the urine. She left to go to uni last month & I can't remember when she last had an infection, so at some point the regular infections stopped.
