Could by 2 year old have a UTI *update*

Okay, I asked this question last week because my 2 year old son was crying and saying "pee pee hurt" when he pees. It's not all the time, but about a couple of times a day he does this. I took him to the doctor and they tested his urine. It came back normal but he is still doing the same thing...saying it hurts. So, my doctor wants me to take him to a specialist at Children's Memorial Hospital...what the heck could this be!?!?! It is so wierd, he doesn't cry every time he pees, only sometimes but when he does he acts like someone is killing it really hurts. Has anyone else delt with this?

  • Is he drinking more juice and milk than water? I would try giving him more water during the day and see if that doesn't help. GL

  • Have you noticed if his "pee pee" is stiff when he complains about pain? My boys complain that it hurts from time to time when it's stiff and they try going potty.

  • My son was around 2 when he had his UTI, his is caused by mild kidney reflux. we had gone to the dr, they tested his diaper becuase he would not pee in a cup. It came back fine, it continued and finally we went to the ER. Turns out he did have a UTI and was treated with antibiotics for it. Because of his age and the fact hes a boy we ended up having a VCUG done (which if your son has to have one done in the future, make sure they sedate him). I would definatly have him checked out ASAP again, its very painful to have a uti and even worse so for a little child.

  • Thank you everyone! I am going to keep a close eye on him and if he continues to cry when he pees I am going to take him back! It is just so frustrating when you know something is wrong with your child and the doctor says he is fine. Thanks so much!
