Yesterday afternoon when my daughter went to the bathroom to pee she said it"hurt her" i tried to get her to describe to me what it felt like and she just keeps saying it hurts but only when she uses the bathroom. I think she isn't wiping like she should every time she goes to the bathroom and lately have had to remind her over and over even though there has never been a problem before.
What could be going on? She's never had any issues before... I have never had the issue myself but i'm guessing by the sound it could be a UTI?
Is there anything i can do at home for her instead of taking her to the dr if i can get out of it?
First time i heard anything about it was yesterday afternoon and shes mentioned it twice today.
I feel horrible...
Don't feel bad these things happen. My five (6 on Sunday) yr old doesn't always wipe her bum no matter how many times I tell her she even lies and says she has when she hasn't!
It could well be a uti though, ask her whether its her front bottom that hurts or if its the back bottom where the poo comes from. If its the front or she doesn't know then I'd take her to the doctor for some antibiotics.
Yeah I think uti. You probably needs antibiotics. I really think you should go... My mum never took me to the doctor when I had a uti because she doesn't approve of antibiotics. My uti never got sorted and went on for years and it was horrible.
I took her yesterday morning and everything came back negative they did say he had very little blood in her urine which could be because of a few different things such as wiping, not washing properly, not washing soap off properly. So who knows....
She's only taken a few bubble baths her whole life. But she did about 2 weeks ago. She hasn't complained of hurting anymore but she has had a few accidents during the day and at night which is completely shocking to me becuase before now he's only had 1 accident since being potty trained!! She doesn't say it hurts or anything like that. All her test came back negative. So I'm just keeping a eye on things for now.
