Has your toddler ever had a urinary tract or bladder infection?

What werre the symptoms? How early did you catch it? What was the treatment?

Depending on the age of your child symptoms can be pulling at their groin. a stinging feeling with urination that may cause them to cry. you can help ease some pain if it is a female by pouring warm water over her vagina while she urinates. The urine usually smells very strong and can be dark, cloudy. Treatment requires a doc visit. he will need to test it to find out what bacteria is present, and give the proper antibiotics. start your child on cranberry juice now. it can be cran/apple cran/raspberry doesn't matter what brand you just need it to be cranberry. if it is difficult for your child to produce a sample at the doc office you can get one from home. You will need to boil a glass jar and lid for 15 min. then use a wipe and if a female wipe vaginal area from front to back. if a male clean the top of the penis. then have them pee into the jar (easy if male). Possible cause of infection if this is a female is that she isn't wiping properly. maybe back to front instead of front to back. real important mom if this a new task for your child to try to observe how the wiping technique is done. good luck see the doc tom morrow  (+ info)

Can you tell me the difference between post urinary retention and distended bladder?

What are the treatments for these?

A distended bladder is just a bladder that is larger than normal, usually due to holding a lot of urine. The distention can go away if you urinate unless there is an organic cause.

Post urinary retention means that after you urinate, urine is left in your bladder or kidneys. It is a significant enough amount that it can be seen on a scan or with a test. This can cause recurrent urinary tract infections which can lead to a buildup of scar tissue, the loss of the "full" feeling in the bladder, and even incontinence.

A distended bladder doesn't really require treatment unless there is loss of muscle tone due to it being distended for a long period of time. It helps to empty your bladder on a regular basis, about every 2 hours if possible, to keep it from getting too full and possibly weakening the muscle.
As for post urinary retention, there are a few treatments available. One is to do a straight cath after voiding to make sure the bladder is empty. Another, most often used in conjunction with the straight cath or by itself, is medication to get rid of the infection if one is there. Other meds are available to help with the condition. Surgical intervention may be indicated. Bladder retraining can be helpful.  (+ info)

How do I stop my bladder from being so overactive sometimes I use the restroom more than 4 times in a hour?

sometimes all I drink is water. I have no clue why i have to be the one running to the restroom every 15 mins.

Well, perhaps you have an overactive bladder and medication can be prescribed to ease the feeling to go. Maybe a Urinary Tract Infection. Well, if you did drink caffeine, it would irritate your bladder...but water shouldn't be a problem unless you are drinking tons of it. I suggest seeing a doctor about the problem.  (+ info)

Is it true that drinking cranberry juice can help an overactive bladder?

I think I might have a problem, and I want to know of any solutions .. preferably natural solutions.

Cranberry juice can be very beneficial to urinary tract/bladder health. I drink at least 8 ounces a day. I have a few problems in the past and that's one thing my doctor recommended. Only issue is, cranberry juice has a lot sugar, but you can get sugar free and it does the job too. But, if you have a recurring problem, you should get it checked out just to be safe. Good Luck.  (+ info)

Will penillilin cure a urinary tract/bladder infection?

I have a bad bladder or urinary tract infection and can not afford to go to the doctor.I am uninsured and struggling financially.I have some penicillin in my medicine cabinet that I got for a tooth infection several months ago and would like to know if it can be used to cure my bladder infection since it's all I have? I know amoxicillin is usually used for bladder infections but penicillin is all I have, will it work?

Penicillin has about a 5% chance of working. Most community-acquired UTIs are caused by E. coli, which can be quite resistant to common drugs. You really don't want to risk that the UTI will develop into a kidney infection, which can be fatal, so you DO need to go see a doctor. If you live in a city, do a web search for a free clinic or a Planned Parenthood. You can also go to the ER, which has to treat you regardless of your ability to pay.

Seriously, it's not worth taking chances with this, and some heavy-duty antibiotics are the only thing that will get rid of it.  (+ info)

What type of doctor treats overactive bladder syndrome?

a family physician or is it a urologist or something else? Thanks.

It would be best to go to a urologist as opposed to a family physician for overactive bladder, as urologists specialize in in the urinary system, which includes the bladder.  (+ info)

how do you treat a urinary track infection or a bladder infection?

Any time that there is blood in the urine you need to go the doctor. They need to determine where the infection is either the urinary tract , bladder or your kidneys...if you have a fever or severe abdominal pain then you need to seek emergency care..if you don't then call and make an appointment as you can. You can not treat this at home you will need antibiotics...Get Well Soon!!!  (+ info)
