My 4 year old daughter was complaining that it hurt everytime she peed. I had some AZO test strips and had her pee on one.
It was positive for Leukocytes, so I'm thinking that means white blood cells or bacteria are present. I'm thinking she has a UTI.
I'm making an appointment with her pedi. But I'm wondering if the AZO can be considered valid because it is meant for adult females. Do you think it's likely she has an infection because it was positive? Is it still valid even if used for a 4 year old?
Can I do the same things for her that I would do for my self for a UTI? Cranberry juice, trying to get her to drink water, ect. Can I give her a children's vitamin C? What else can I do to keep her comfortable until we see the doctor?
Thanx for reading and thoughts.
