Problem With Child Wetting Herself

I am having trouble with my 5 year old wetting on herself during the day. This happens approximately 2-3 times a day. I need answers as to why this could be happening and how to react.

Definitely speak to your pediatrician, especially if she has been dry previously. You need to rule out things like diabetes and urinary tract infections. Please don't delay!

Yes, see a doctor. And what ever you do, do not feel it's something you are doing. Is someone bullying her? Is she frightened of something? Has she had a sudden loss lately like a pet or a friend? Often physical reactions are caused by mental or emotional problems. Good luck!!

I know when I was young I had a problem with wetting in my pants. I just could not hold it. I had six bladder operations before the age of six. They corrected the issue. So, yes, see a doctor. It could very well be a physical problem for which your child has no control.

My little girl had the same problem. I was at my wits end. Came to find out she was alergic to sulphur and this is what was causing the incontence. Unusual, I know, but when we avoided the sulphur, the problem disappeared. You may consider having her checked for a hidden allergy.

You should speak to your pediatrician on this issue. There are lots of reasons children wet themselves and you need to rule out any medical issues to help you go in the right direction.

I am always amazed when questions like this appear on a site like this. Your child needs a doctor as soon as possible. Diabetes is a serious desease and your child may have it. Also someone could be hurting her in some way, even molesting her. Take her to the doctor and don't take advice from those who are not professionals.

I agree with everyone else. Take her to her pediatrician as soon as you can.
