Thanks for your query.

Urinary tract infections are not uncommon in that age. The risk is increased in girls, children with constipation or the ones that still need diapers. So you should not worry too much about that. You should see a doctor so that he can prescribe antibiotics if the diagnosis is confirmed.

By the way, the urine strip alone is not sufficient for a diagnosis.

Have a nice day and good luck.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

There could be several causes of urinary tract infection.
Drinking less water is one of them. Congenital abnormalities of the urinary tract should be identified if there are recurrent episodes of UTI.
What is her age?

What are the other complaints she is having?
Does she have increased frequency of urination or burning urination?

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
