Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Thank you for your question.

Infections in toddler age group is common(3yrs-6yrs). I would suggest you to take him to a paediatrician and get a few investigations done to rule to urinary tract infection. Otherwise proper hygiene, good diet including fruits and vegetables should be enough for him to build immunity.

I hope this answers your query. Good luck.

With best regards,
I find this answer helpful
