    UTIs in Children Directory

    UTIs in children are often caused by germs in the stool that get inside the urethra. These germs travel to the bladder and/or kidneys and cause an infection. With treatment, these infections do not usually last a long time. Treatments include antibiotics, drinking extra fluids, using the bathroom often, and more. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how urinary tract infections in children are caused as well as symptoms, causes, treatments, and prevention.
