  • call the doctor she could have a bladder infection. Or some kids to touch themselves a lot. my little cousin did that at about 4 or 5 and would rub herself raw and it hurt when she peed. Is she red or anything?

  • It very possibly can be a UTI. Let her drink a lot of water and make a doc appt. just to be sure. Holding your bladder is a sure-fire way to get a Urinary Tract Infection!

  • Shes not red or anything like that, I think its because she waits until lat minute to pee..

  • cranberry juice. and if it is a uti, you wont be able to vissibly see it. and yes you can get them from holding your pee too long and too much. it lets the bacteria just sit in there and fester.

  • That may be, OP, but you can't see the "red" from a UTI infection, it's inside the urinary tract...and usually it hurts to pee when one gets a UTI.

  • My is on a antibotic for the third time due to a bladder infection. And that is probley her problem. Try to see how she wipes herself which is one thing doctor told me to do. Since have to wait till monday.. Your best things to give her are cranberry juice, and fluids, and wiping good. oh another doctor said. No bubble bath but to sit and play in just plain water each night to help clean up the area. Also try yoguat which is good. I hope that helps. Give me a shout and let me know how things are working for you cause I might think of something else later that I might have forgot. Then get her to doctor on monday.
