How to Treat Urinary Tract Infections In Childhood
Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for your child. Treatment options include:
Treatment with antibiotics will help clear up the infection.
In some cases, severe UTIs are treated with intravenous or intramuscular antibiotics. Researchers have found that oral antibiotics appear to be as effective in treating UTIs as other treatments.
Drink plenty of fluids to flush the bacteria out of the system, and to prevent the urine from becoming too concentrated.
If your child is diagnosed with a UTI, follow your doctor's instructions.
