Child with pinkish spots in urine.No pain. What is the cause?

Hi. When my son urinated on the potty chair before going poop, there was a very, very slight pink spot on the toilet paper where his penis touches (we put a piece of toilet paper on the splash guard of the potty chair and saw the very light pink spot there). He has no pain and is urinating normally. Any thoughts on what might be causing this? He did have his urine tested when this happened a month ago and his urine was totally clean (the culture even came back negative). Thanks! Shelly

Hi Shelly,

Thank you for your query.

It is good that the urine culture is negative. However, you have not mentioned what the urine routine report was like. If red blood cells are present in urine than it can be pink. Fresh normal urine is never pink in colour.

If the microscopic urine shows red blood cells then your son needs to be evaluated for its cause and treated accordingly.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction.
