Nephrologist 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
From your description it appears that your son has no evidence of infection or a structural problem like a stone.
If his urine analysis shows persistent blood trace blood he might well have a primary disease of the kidney like IgA Nephropathy. If there is proteins positive in the urine then it will increase this possibility.
Please see a nephrologist for further management and investigations.
Hope this helps
Good luck.
