Yes, there is the possibility that she could be having a urinary tract infection
. Hopefully, your GP would have considered this as a possible explanation for the symptoms that your daughter is having, but there is the chance that he or she did not. If they did not discuss it with you, then it may be appropriate to call and ask if any testing was completed to look for a urinary tract infection. UTIs are not very common in young children, but they can happen. When they do, they can be overlooked due to children not having experience with the symptoms of urgency and frequency as well as dysuria that adults are more familiar with. Additionally, they may not have the verbage or comfort level to express these symptoms even if present. Another thing that may contribute to urinary frequency can be constipation, which is common in many children in this age group. Your doctor
may talk to you about this as well. There are many different potential explanations for the symptoms that your daughter is experiencing, and some of them may not be just physical reasons. Speaking with her doctor or pediatrician
is a great way to get answers. Please speak with her doctor.
