    Default Can I give URAL to a 2yo?

    I think DD has (or is getting) a UTI.

    She's been complaining last night and this morning of a 'sore v a g i n a' and this morning she's going to the toilet every 15-20mins but only doing a dribble.

    I know that when I'm getting a UTI, a double dose of URAL sometimes knocks it out of me. Other times Ive needed to take it for a few days but I've only ever needed antibiotics once.

    Do I need to take DD to the doctors? Or can I give her some URAL first and see if that clears it up?

    I'd take her to the doctor to be safe. The infection could get bad quite quick in a little one.

    I don't think (may be wrong) that URL is suitable for use in kids. I would take her to the dr personally. You can also make sure she drinks plenty of water and dilute cranberry juice but if she is in pain there is a good chance she already has an infection and needs ab's.

    I dont think you can give it to kids under 12. Take her to the GP, they can be quite nasty to their little kidneys.

    Try cranberry juice - if she will drink it.

    I had to give DD some Citravescent (basically same thing) last year as she was showing signs of developing a UTI and I couldn't get into the doc straight away. The packet had dosage from 6-12, so I just halved the dose and then watered it down a bit more (and added some ribena so she liked the taste). It has a lot of sodium but as her diet is generally low in salt I wasn't worried about that.

    Anyhow when I told the doctor he said that's fine, it's perfectly safe and I did the right thing reducing the dose. She did not need antibiotics because the citravescent did 'nip it in the bud' (as it usually does for me if I take it soon enough).

    The active ingredients are Sodium Bicarbonate (bicarb) which is used regularly in cooking and (I believe - correct if wrong) occurs naturally in our bodies and some Citric (eg. from citrus) Acid and Tartaric Acid (also naturally occuring in fruit). That's why I figured it would be safe. I hope she gets better soon.
