Any symptom suspicious for urinary tract infection, including painful urination, urinary frequency or urgency should be evaluated by your physician.

Other common types of urinary problems involve irritation of the urethra. This occurs especially in girls who take bubble baths or add soapy substances to their bath water. It is generally recommended that substances such as bubble baths, dish washing liquid, bath oil, bath beads or additives be avoided.

If your child develops problems with night-time or even daytime wetting (enuresis), please consult the section on bed wetting.
