UTI Blood In Urine

Hi my 8 year old daughter had noticed when she went to the toilet and wiped herself there was a bit of pink on the toilet paper, also it was sore. I took her to the doctors and he suspected UTI and gave her course of antibiotics, however another doctor, said that the water test was negative and she didnt need the antibiotics. Then the drs rang and said that she needed another water test to be on the safe side. This test came bakc with no bacteria but blood in the urine, shes had to have another test still awaiting the results. Do you think this is serious.

Re: UTI Blood In Urine

since there appears to be some issues between docs about her situation,i really do think,just given her symptoms that obtaining an ultrasound on her bladder and her kidneys could reveal some sort of possible issue.just a thought.there are many reasons that a child could have blood in the urine,some can stem from an internal problem with the bladder or kidneys themselves.if nothing else,this test would rule out alot of possible congenital type problems she could concievably have.if she is actually retaining urine in her bladder,this US would also pick that up too.they can also see how the blood is flowing to and from these organs using the little doppler part of the test as well.just a thought for you if you really want to be as thorough as possible.she obviously has something going on with having blood in her urine.the key is tracking it back to where it actually stems from.hopefully they can find that cause really soon.please let me know how she is doing,K?
