  • UTI or bladder infection?

    Either way, she'll need antibiotics.

    Go to the doc and have her get a pap done.

  • Your urine can have a different appearence/color based on your diet...it doesn't necessarily indicate a problem.

    If she has a burning/weird sensation when she pees, or is only passing a small amount of urine each time she goes, then she should see a doctor.

  • But what about a UTI with little to no symptoms? I was plagued by those when I was pregnant. Didn't burn or anything. It was really annoying, I even had to be on UTI meds when I gave birth.

    Just saying, better safe than sorry, ya know?

  • I highly doubt she's pregnant as she's 11

  • Have her drink lots of water and cranberry juice today and see how things are tomorrow. avoid caffeine. She might need a urinalysis.

  • Possibly she isn't drinking enough fluid. Pee should be light in color. Suggest that she sip a lot of water for a while. The cloudiness makes me wonder about possible infection. If she has a fever or discomfort or urgently needs to go a lot, then see a doctor because that does sound like infection.

  • not enough water or a vitamin she is taking could do it.not necessarily an infection if it doesn't burn but you might want to get it checked out.
