Causes And Ways To Overcome A 6-month-old Baby Who Peed Slightly And Is Yellow?
Hello doctor … I have a 6 month old baby girl. It’s been a week to pee a little bit and yellow. Usually when I take a shower in the evening, I change the diaper full, but now it’s been a week for each diaper change, the diaper is light and the pee isn’t too much. Please explain, my child, why?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Complaints of BAK disorders accompanied by any weights in infants and children may indicate a condition of urinary tract infection (UTI). UTI is the growth and proliferation of germs in the urinary tract in significant amounts. In infants UTI symptoms can be nonspecific such as fever, fussiness, decreased appetite, growth disturbance, diarrhea and vomiting, or stinging urine. Whereas older children can be as symptomatic as plumps, bedwetting, cloudy urine, low back pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or high fever.
To be able to ascertain the suspicion of UTI in infants, in addition to direct physical examination by a doctor, generally routine blood tests, routine urine, or urinary tract imaging and ultrasound if necessary to assess whether there are anatomical abnormalities of the urinary organs. Handling further after confirmed UTI diagnosed is to eradicate the germs that cause with appropriate antibiotics, as well as improve the cleanliness of the area around the genitals.
UTIs need to get optimal treatment because if not given treatment will risk severe complications such as kidney failure, failure to thrive, or infection in the whole body (sepsis). Therefore do not hesitate to consult further with a pediatrician for current complaints.
That's all, hope you can help.
