User :   Hi, my 3 old went potty in a portable little toilet. I noticed as I was about to empty it that there were some powdery residue in the bottom. I don't think it is feces. The urine was in the portable toilet for over an hour, so something might have collected and crystallized in the urine. I don't see any blood in the urine. Any thoughts?
Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Dr here
User :   Hi Dr.
Doctor :   ok,
Doctor :   there are so many substances in urine which crystallise in urine
Doctor :   main one would be urea
User :   I've asked her if she is in any pain and she saus no.
Doctor :   there are many pathological crystals also
Doctor :   fine then,
Doctor :   but still to be on safer side get a urine analysis of hers which will rule out other pathological crystals
User :   ok, that's kind of what I was thinking. There is quite a noticeable amount, so we'll follow up with her pediatrician and get a urinalysis...thanks.
Doctor :   thts rite, is there anything else i can help you with ?
User :   no thank you...thanks for your help.
Doctor :   thanks for consulting, kindly give your feedback
Doctor :   bye for now
User :   will do..bye!
