Can you use ranitidine for bladder infection or urinary tract infections for a 10 year old girl?

Urinary tract infections require immediate medical attention and can only be treated with antibiotics. There are some medicines that can help with the pain, but they do not treat the infection. Pain meds include phenazopyridine (AZO, Uristat, Pyridium), which is the most effective; urinary alkalizers like Ural; and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen or aspirin. Topical hydrocortisone (0.5%-1%) can be put around the urethral opening to stop inflammation. Ranitidine is prescribed by some urologists to treat interstitial cystitis, a condition where the bladder and urethra experience inflammation with no known cause. The ranitidine can prevent inflammation, and as sometimes the inflammation causes UTIs, it can help prevent UTIs in some people. In other words, it is used for PREVENTION of UTIs, not TREATMENT. Children may be advised not to take ranitidine, and you should talk to a medical professional first.

Also alot of the CVS drug stores have nurse practioners that can prescribe for urinary infections do a web search for CVS-nurse practioners."Cranberries for preventing urinary tract infectionsCranberries (usually as cranberry juice) have been used to try and prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). Cranberries contain a substance that can prevent bacteria from sticking on the walls of the bladder. This may help prevent bladder and other urinary tract infections. This review identified 10 studies (1049 participants) comparing cranberry products with placebo, juice or water. There was some evidence to show that cranberries (juice and capsules) can prevent recurrent infections in women. However, the evidence for elderly men and women was less clear, and there is evidence that is not effective in people who need catheterisation. Many people in the trials stopped drinking the juice, suggesting it may not be a popular intervention. In addition it is not clear how long cranberry juice needs to be taken to be effective or what the required dose might be."Jepson RG, Craig JC. Cranberries for preventing urinary tract infections.
