Abdominal pain, fever, accompanied by frequent urination in boys may indicate a urinary tract infection (UTI). Indeed, epidemiologically, this disease is more vulnerable to be experienced by women. However, even boys can experience it, especially if they are unable to maintain the cleanliness of their intimate organs properly, have not been circumcised, often insert foreign objects into their genitals (eg soil, dust), often hold back urination, lack of drinking, or also have problems with his endurance. This UTI occurs due to an increase in bacteria from the anus and genitals into the urinary tract and triggers inflammation. Not only abdominal pain, fever, and frequent urination, UTI can also make urine become turbid, bloody, and pungent. Patients can also experience nausea, vomiting, and shivering that is quite severe in more severe conditions.
In addition to UTI, it is also possible, fever and abdominal pain that your child experiences due to other causes, such as gastroenteritis (digestive infection), hepatitis, typhoid fever (typhus), dyspepsia (increased gastric acid), inflammation of the intestine, or other causes.
