And sowing on microbes shows the presence in the urine of the E. coli - the most frequent pathogen in the urinary tract.

Hygiene rules will help avoid this. Women are particularly important to repeatedly wash out, while the movement should not be from the rectum forward, but in the opposite direction.
In addition to E. coli, Gram-positive and Gram-negative flora - streptococci, staphylococci - can settle in the kidneys. But 90% of kidney inflammations are still related to the rules of personal hygiene.
How to treat pyelonephritis?
The purpose of treatment is primarily in eradication, that is, removal of the pathogen. For this, antibacterial therapy( antibiotics), copious drinking and ancillary drugs are used.
It is important to drink at least 2 liters of fluid per day. This will help wash the kidneys.
