Hi,

It could be voiding dysfunction.
The kid might require an ultrasound for this.
As of now you can use OTC steroid + antifungal medication. If it is not better in 5 days - see her pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
