5 year old, sore tinkle after urinating. Urine test shows presence of protein, blood. Infection?

My 5 year old boy complained last week about a sore tinkle after peeing. He didnt mention it since but mentioned a sore back the other day so I handed in a sample this morning. The doctor said there was protein and blood in his urine and sent it to get further testing.

He's recently shown signs of an ear infection could this have caused it ?

Pediatrician 's  Response

Your 5yrs old son will have to be examined firstly to rule out any injury or boil in the penis.

If it has been ruled out then there is a possibility that the ear infection was due to Streptococcus and he could be suffering from Post streptococcal glomerulronephritis now if the urine on keeping still in air after sometime changes to coffee ground colour.

If there is pus also in the urine sample then it is likely to be urinary infection which will have no correlation with the ear infection.

However at present since the full urine report is not available it would be difficult to comment.


Take Care.
