My son is 4 years old. He has been having trouble in peeing for the past two days. I do not know if his penis burns or itches when he pees. When I ask him if it hurts, he says no. It looks like he wants to pee but keeps holding it, since it is painful. There is some red pus or something in his diaper. What could be the reason? Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
The clinical features which you have mentioned indicate that your baby might have UTI (urinary tract infection) or urinary stone (less likely). A child with UTI will have a burning sensation during micturition (urination).
UTI might cause hematuria (blood in urine). This is the cause for the red color in your child's diaper. UTI may or may not be associated with fever.
