Children and Urinary Tract Infections

Is it possible to treat children through natural remedies with Urinary Tract Infections? Of course it is possible, however the diagnoses is tricky if you don’t have an actual lab report- or at the very least, a home test indicating a positive (which may be hard to collect urine from a young child). The other issue is making sure that the child is improving and actually overcoming the infection. You are the parent and ultimately responsible for your child. But if you suspect a Urinary Tract Infection in your child, a visit to the doctor to get a proper diagnoses is recommended. 

What are the symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection in children? There may be no symptoms at all or they may just include  irritability. Decreased urination- especially when you know they have been drinking regularly can be a symptom. The urine may be bright in color, especially on the diaper. Older children, tend to have the classic symptoms, pain on urination, the frequent urge to urinate with not much coming out, lower abdominal pain and possibly fever.

What can I do before I get them to the doctor? Make sure to give them lots of liquid, keeping the Urinary Tract diluted. DO NOT put heat on their stomachs or back as some sites may even suggest. This is a possible infection. Infection can grow with heat exposure. The bacteria causing the infection loves a most heated zone, this is one of the worst things you can do. Grab some parsley, either have them munch on it, or make a little tea with it. Let it cool, then have the child drink it.

Can a Urinary Tract Infection possibly lead to other problems? Yes it can, and some can be very serious. For instance a kidney infection

There are plenty of things that you can do and NOT DO to help your child prevent any issue with the Urinary Tract and infections associated with the Urinary Tract. Have them drink plenty of water. Another huge problem with children, is bacteria coming from the bath tub and bubbles added to the bath water, along with their dirty little bodies that have brought you to the bath in the first place.

Japan as well as other cultures, have a nice tradition when it comes to the bath. One actually washes off, by showering or soaping up and dumping water over oneself, BEFORE entering the bathtub. That way, the bathtub does not become contaminated with the dirt, scum and sweat that can be on the child’s skin.
