hello,
it may be dark coloured urine or blood in urine. there may be some geniti urinary system or liver involvement. consult a pediatrician . lab tests like routine urine examination, liver function test may be required.but its diificult to give diagnosis without physical examination and test reports. consult your dr. take care

My daughter of age 5.5years has fever since 4days. It started on Saturday evening with fever and also slight cough. Consulted doctor and Gave paracetamol overnight and from Sunday morning started with antibiotic (amoxycillin and potassium clavulanate) and codphos DX syrup (Dextromethorphan Hbr, Phenylephrine HCL and chlorpheniramine maleate syrup). Since fever was high (102 deg), I even wiped her body with wet cloth whenever it went high. On Monday night got the complete blood test and urine test done for typhoid and dengue. Both were negative. All other readings were Normal except for urine (pus cells 18-20cells/hpf; epithelial cells 3-4 cells/hpf and protein present in urine). It was diagnosed as urine infection and continued same antibiotic and also gave paracetamol every 4hours since Monday night till Tuesday night and stopped it as there was no fever. Tuesday overnight fever was not there till 4am. Later at around 5am she had got fever. Gave her paracetamol again and now she s sleeping. Can you please tell us what could be the possible cause for it and how to proceed?

My 23 month old daughter started having fever last night, highest she s had was 104.2. We gave her infant s tylenol which have helped but she s still having fever of 100.8 latest. I also noticed a very foul smelling urine when I changed her diaper. Other than that, she doesn t have any other symptoms. I already made an appt with the doctor to see her. Could it be a sign of UTI? Thanks

Recent questions on  Urine test strip

doctor1 MD

Recently my urine was tested with a dipstick and then sent for urinalysis twice. My doctor said that there was a plus 1 red blood cell in my urine. The first test was done during my period therefore she asked to repeat it. The second test was done 3 days before my next period. I am 33 and I had a cesearean section 10 months ago. Could the surgery have cause damage? How worried should I be about these results?

I have had 3 or more Urine analysis with the following results:

UBG: 1 mg/dl, BIL: 1 mg/dl, BLD: 50 Ery/uL. The rest of the values are normal. I am concerned because these values keep showing up on a regular basis. I do not have any symptoms. Are these results normal?
