Causes Of Urinary Tract Infections In Children?
Good morning, my child has been in the hospital for one week. And from the results of his urine culture it is said that there is an e choli bacteria. I want to ask, what does my child have urinary tract infection cause? Are you from Dr. Pampers or are there others? I didn’t ask the doctor because in the morning the doctor’s visit was only one time and the time was fast so I arrived. Please explain. Thank you 🙂
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, how exactly is your child's age now?
Children are indeed one of the age groups that are susceptible to urinary tract infections (UTI). There are many factors behind this condition, including:
Close distance between the anus and the urinary hole (especially in girls) Relatively weak immune system compared to adults Poor hygiene, including due to the use of moist diapers or not replaced regularly, due to the entry of foreign objects into urinary tract when playing Lack of drinking The habit of consuming excessive food or sugary drinks, this condition can facilitate the development of bacteria in the body, including in the urinary tract The habit of holding back the urge to urinate Sexual abuse by adults, etc. Symptoms of UTI in children are often not typical. This often makes handling late, and the child's condition has deteriorated.
If you have seen your child seen by a doctor, your actions are appropriate. With proper treatment, UTI in children is often not an incurable disease. To optimize healing, you should also do the following tips:
Live the child's treatment as advised by the doctor Give the child more water to drink Give the child also healthy and nutritious food so that his immune system remains excellent If the child is still using diapers, choose diapers that are highly absorbent and sized fit (not too tight), replace the diaper every wet or at least every 4 hours As early as possible, teach children toilet training Also change the child's underwear periodically Every child has defecated, clean his genitals in the right way, which uses good quality water, without using soap or careless cleaning , and wipe from front to back (not vice versa) If there are still complaints that are felt while still undergoing treatment from a doctor, do not hesitate to disclose to the doctor or pediatrician who treats your child to be handled properly.
Hope this helps.
