Urinary Tract Infection in Children - What do I do if I suspect another UTI?

Page 8

If your child has symptoms then you should attend your doctor’s surgery and obtain a proper urine specimen for culture before antibiotics are given. Even if it is a weekend the urine can be stored in the fridge and taken to the surgery or clinic first thing on Monday morning.

Keep a note of any further infections that your child had and any antibiotics that are given. If your child has repeated infections then they should be referred back to the clinic again.
