Urinary Tract Infection (Child)

Urinary Tract Infection (Child) - Symptoms

​Symptoms of urinary tract infection are usually non-specific in a baby or young child. Unexplained fever or fever without an obvious source is the only consistent symptom among young children with UTI.

In some infants : There may be poor feeding, increased irritability, vomiting or cloudy and smelly urine.

In older children : The symptoms are more specific to the urinary tract. They may have pain or a burning sensation when passing urine, increased frequency of urination, an urge to urinate even after emptying their bladders, lower abdominal pain and uncontrolled wetting.

Pain over the loin and fever suggests a more serious infection in older children.
