It seems as UTI (urinary tract infection)
no need to worry.
Take proper medicine which you have prescribe by your Pediatrician.
Give plenty of water.

In female urinary tract is smaller than male. So female is more prone to infection.
Give her plenty of water every day.
Maintain proper hygiene.

"i wish your child good health"
