Urinary tract infections, also called bladder infections or UTIs, are pretty common in kids, babies and teens. The bacteria build up in the urinary tract. This can happen if they don’t go to the bathroom often enough or even if they don’t get enough fluids.
Does my child have a urinary tract infection?
Symptoms can include needing to go to the bathroom often, pain or burning when urinating. If your child suddenly starts wetting the bed, a urinary tract infection could be the culprit.
The doctor can run a urine sample to test and can treat with antibiotics if the infection is bacterial.
