Hello Erika Dasa,
Urinary tract infections are infections that occur in the urinary tract that can affect the kidneys, ureters (channels that connect the kidneys and bladder), bladder, and urethra (the channel from the bladder to the outside. Urinary tract infections in children most often due to bacterial infection. Small children are prone to urinary tract infections when hygiene of the pubic area and surrounding areas is lacking, mothers wash / chop children in the wrong direction after bowel movements, pampers that are not replaced routinely (allowed bowel movements to accumulate), male babies who are uncircumcised and have phimosis ( part of the estuary covered by the skin of the front of the penis).
Urinary tract infections in children are characterized by symptoms:
Fussy kids, especially when they want to urinate
Urine smells bad
Nausea and vomiting
Urinary tract infections are diagnosed through clinical symptoms, physical examination, and also investigations in the form of urine analysis. If there is a sign of a bacterial infection, the patient will be given antibiotics for several days and a repeat urine test will be done to evaluate whether the infection has disappeared / is reduced.
Hematuria or the presence of blood in urine can also be proven from urine analysis other than observation. Hematuria in children can be caused by:
Urinary tract infection
Inflammation of the kidneys (nephritis)
Blood clotting disorders
Urinary tract trauma
Or in severe conditions such as sepsis
Give children to drink more and observe the blood that comes out of the urinary tract decreases / disappears. If there is more blood loss from urine, the baby looks pale, can not urinate at all, the baby is very fussy when he wants to urinate, you should bring the baby back to see a doctor. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
