my daughter is 4 years old and is having frquent UTI since last year, sometimes she has low grade fever evry month for few days, last month she was given whole antibiotic course and again last week she had uti pain while urinating and again her antibiotics have started, yesterday ultrasound of lower abdomen has also been done but everything is normal, but as soon as i press her lower abdomen she starts to feel pee or when she gets her tummy full of food she feels pee or while jumping also. I am worried about vasicourethral reflux.health Corner
I'm assuming the doctor has planned more tests for her given the frequent infections. These would be special scans to look for vesico ureteric reflux/ bladder emptying and kidney function etc. Once the investigations are complete, it will be clearer if there is an underlying cause for the infections or not. Till then, make she drinks enough water and empties her bladder fully when she goes. Treat any infection as advised with antibiotics and mantaine hygiene. Do keep us posted.
