    Is frequent urination in a child indicative of UTI?

Posted on Thu, 2 May 2019 in Child Health
Question: Hello Doctor,

This is regarding my 5 year old daughter.
She has been passing urine (little quantity) but many times from morning, roughly around 15 times from 9 A.M till 2:30 P.M. She is otherwise active and normal.
Should we take any care? Could this be related to some urinal infection?
Please advice.
Thanks in advance!

Best Regards XXXXXXX U

Brief Answer:

Urinary tract infection needs to be ruled out

Detailed Answer:


Urinary tract infection needs to be ruled out.
But it is unlikely without fever or vomiting or pain abdomen.
But I suggest you get a urine routine examination done and get back to me, please.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
