With our monthly subscription model, we can see your children as many times as you need for $0 visit costs and assess if a urinary tract infection is present.

A Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is an infection in the urinary system, which includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. It occurs when bacteria enters your child’s urinary tract, makes their home in its system, and reproduces its kind. This infection type can be life threatening if it travels to the upper urinary tract, so you must take your child to see a board-certified pediatrician as soon as possible.

Anyone can suffer a UTI, though girls are more highly affected by the condition than men.

Urinary tract infections are among the most common types of infections in children, with 8% of girls and 2% of boys experiencing the condition before the age of 6. Children who wear diapers have a higher risk of UTI because of increased bacteria in the genital area. Specifically, young girls, uncircumcised boys under the age of 1, and children with compromised immune systems have the largest UTI risk.

Urinary tract infections develop when bacteria enters the urinary tract. The body has natural systems (white blood cells) to fight this type of infection, but sometimes those immune fighters fail, allowing an infection to grow. In your child, urinary tract infections occur most often from Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria that are commonly found in the GI tract.
One way bacteria enters your kids’ urinary tract is when they hold their pee too long, trapping harmful, microscopic creatures that turn into a bladder infection. This situation occurs most often in children learning to potty train and in older males with enlarged prostates.

Can I prevent a UTI?

Sometimes, Urinary Tract Infections happen on their own, and there is not much you can do to stop it. However, there are several precautions you can take to prevent them from occurring or reoccurring and assist the body in fighting them off when they appear.
The National Institute of Health, namely, recommends that those at risk for a UTI drink plenty of fluids to help the urinary tract flush out any bacteria that may occur. Also, frequent diaper changes eliminate rather than increase the risk of bacteria growing and causing infection.
Parents should teach children of potty-training age proper hygiene and general health care for themselves. To girls especially, it is essential to stress the importance of wiping from front to back to prevent feces from entering the urethra.

How do Telehealth Pediatricians treat UTIs?

Pediatricians would take a child’s urine sample to test for bacteria and germs in the urine, in the past, to officially diagnose a urinary tract infection. However, they find that this test is not always medically necessary when clear signs and symptoms of a UTI are present and explained. Therefore, our board-certified kid doctors can diagnose your child’s condition with a virtual



To diagnose a UTI in a Telemedicine appointment, our doctors will ask pointed and specific questions about the condition. If your child is young, you, as the parent, will need to be present to answer these questions to the best of your ability. These questions may involve asking about frequency of urination, color, and smell of urine, when symptoms began, and if there is a history of UTI diagnosis. If your child is a teenager, they can answer these questions for themselves.



Once the doctor has enough information to confidently diagnose the condition as a UTI, they will give direct instructions on how to care for the pain and discomfort. Your child should experience diminishing symptoms and feel better, but if they do not, you can schedule a follow-up online appointment to reevaluate their condition.
