Tot has sore vagina, sibling was detected with ecoli in urine. Is it related?

Hi. 4 weeks ago my 4 month old baby had a high temp/sickness. A urine sample was sent off and came back as ecoli. she was given a week of attibotics and seemed back to her happy self. This week her temp has been rising again slowly, and today she was sick. My 2.5 year has been potty trained for 2 months wih no accidents, but this week she has been wetting herself and tonight while she was in the bath she complained her vagina was sore, i had a look and it did look pretty sore. am i right in thinking she has a urine infection and is this related my 4 month old having ecoli? many thanks

As you 2.5 year old child toilet trained previously and she is now wetting and having sore vagina you better consult your Pediatrician to rule out any urinary tract infection by doing complete urine examination and urine culture and sensitivity.
