  • Bring her to the doctor ASAP. She probably has an infection.

  • Oh she has a UTI or YEAST infection my daughter had a UTI at 6 months I had taken her in cause she was so fussy and they kept sending us home saying she is just teething but everytime I took her diaper off she screamed then peed so I took her back and demanded a UTI testing to be done and sure enough she had a UTI and then after her antibiotics caught a yeast infection so definetley get your daughter to the Dr.

  • My daughter was 14mth old when she got a UTI, 1st ER I went to said it was a virus and sent us home without testing. We took her the am to shildren’s b/c she had a 104 temp and convulsions. They did a blood test & straight cathed her and sure enough she had a raging UTI. B/c she was little they also did an ultra-sound & a test called a VCUG...this is all how we come to find out she only has 1 kidney,born that way This is a list I got from the doc, & while it all may not apply to your DD it might give you an idea of things to look for... Symptoms may include: • Fever, especially without other signs of infections ie.cough or runny nose. • Frequent or infrequent urination. • Strong or foul-smelling urine. • Dark or blood-streaked urine. • Lack of interest or refusing food. • Diarrhea. • Vomiting. • Squirming and irritability. • Diaper rash that doesn't go away. All in all, I'd call the doc right away

  • she most likeyly has a uti or bladder infection go to the dr to have her urine tested. if shes wiping herself she may have got some bacteria in the wrong spot. introduce wet wipes after each potty visit if you havent already.

  • she may have a bladder infection - if a child "holds it" until the very last minute on a regular basis this can cause trouble - see a doc for the appropriate diagnosis and cure
