A cause of urinary tract infections in little girls

“We see children hoiduma go to the toilet from the first year of kindergarten, ”notes Dr Christophe Philippe, pediatrician in Saint-Malo. “The phenomenon mainly affects girls, in whom it can be the cause of vulvitis andkuseteede infektsioonid. “At this age, the bladder is still very unstable, its storage capacity is limited. By dint of holding back, little girls usually end up letting a few drops of urine escape. Still fragile, their vulva can then become irritated on contact with permanently wet panties, resulting in redness and itching. Not to mention that the stagnation of urine too concentrated in the bladder can promote germ development, and consequently urinary tract infections.

How can you prevent little girls from holding back from going to the bathroom?
