4 year old girl with bladder infection

Hi– My daughter (just turned 4) has suffered from some form of urinary problem for the last 6 or 7 months. It took her a while to potty train, then, just when she seemed to have mastered it, she suddenly started wetting her pants several times per day. She was not bothered by her wet underwear nor would she tell anyone when the accident occurred but would just sit in her wet pants. This was strange to us as she was otherwise fairly particular about her comfort and appearance. Also, she began to wet her bed every night which she had never done before, even while potty training. After a while we noticed a fishy smell to her urine, found she had a bladder infection and had her treated with antibiotics. She seemed to improve for a few days, then the accidents and the infection returned and have remained. Her need to urinate is frequent, almost always urgent and seems to come without warning. She has now gotten in the habit of squatting to squelch the urine flow and explains that if she doesn’t it will “splatter everywhere, ” although often very little actually comes out. She doesn’t seem to be in any pain when she urinates, or if she is it must be very slight as she would surely cry. She is otherwise a happy child and has not suffered any traumatic events. Some other factors notable to her: She is tall, but of average weight, has pale skin (you can see her veins) with delicate features and has heavily lidded/almost sleepy-looking eyes, often with dark circles underneath. She is typically cool, but not cold, and prefers all her covers on her, even when it’s hot. She loves to dress up and will only wear dresses and skirts, preferably ones that “twirl out.” She is almost constantly in fantasy land, pretending to be this character or that. She is very talkative, perceptive and interactive, but always needs someone to be with her. She is extremely affectionate. She loves to sing and often sings while she does her “work” at pre-school. She is very social and participatory at school and is well liked by her classmates. Although generally happy, she is also very cautious and fearful, but not of the dark– in fact she prefers absolute dark because she is more afraid of shadows. She is a light sleeper and has occasional nightmares (usually of something bad happening to her mother) and will actually call out in her sleep. Her fears mostly center around “bad guys” or scary animals that she’s seen in movies which she seems to be fascinated with, even in spite of her fears. She tends to take her pretending very seriously and will even run crying from her sister when her sister pretends to snarl like a tiger or other scary animal. She is very sensitive to bright light and also seems sensitive to smells. She really needs her sleep and will grow crabby towards the late afternoon without a nap. Physically she is active, but tires easily, often complaining that she’s tired of walking, even when we haven’t walked very far. From the beginning she’s also had an unusually clumsy streak, frequently hurting herself and occasionally tripping over her own feet. Typically she is very sweet and sensitive to others’ feelings, but at times can be very impatient, stubborn and controlling-- will launch into a meltdown in a split second and later claim she couldn’t control herself-- and when she is thirsty, watch out– she must have water absolutely immediately. A local naturopath gave her a dose of Nux Vomica and it seemed that the need to urinate was less urgent for a couple of days (although her urine continued to smell fishy), but after that she was back to it being urgent again. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I apologize for the length, but I wanted to provide a full picture.

It is a typical case of plumbum metalicum.You can try plumbum metalicum #0c thrice daily for 7 days.

Be careful, the advise given on this forum can be dangerous. You should do your own research before following it.

Please don´t follow this advise. I´m not a homepath but I know that only one remedy at a time and only minimum dose and then wait and see what happens. Otherwise it may cause severe aggravations for a long time...

So my daughter is now five and still having the same problams as your little girl. we have had ultra sounds the horrible bladder test with the xray machine and strap you kid down she even ended up in the hospital on an iv. we have finally gotten an appointment with a specialist we did see a doctor who made sence htough he said she porbably has lesions on her bladder and with anibiotics the infections goes away and then in thim it bulds back up again he suggest a cyscocapy I think it is a camera into the bladder but they clean out the lesions and no more bladder infections. this is very dangerwous for thier kidneys so the sooner the better to get it fixed, it can be a urethra problem and it may be to small or devolped wrong, she could also have it when her urine hiccups into her bladder but only a bunch of test will tell good luck, I will keep you posted we go to the specialist on july 19

I have treated chronic cysitis in young girls (in all girls and women actually) with quite a bit of success. We have some great treatment strategies for it, if you are concerned about the effects of the surgery.

where are you located, what have you done to help with this, how effective is this
marnie last decade
I don't usuall have much trouble with chronic cystitis in patients, but each treatment is individualized so there is no way to just give a standard treatment plan to you. This is how homoeopathy is - every person needs to have their disease understood from their particular perspective.

You can give the case here if you wish and we can look it over.

I practice in Australia so I doubt you will be able to see me face to face :)


It is important to describe all her problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information. Note that some complaints may not lend themselves easily to answer each of these questions.

1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in her life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?

Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF HER HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE. You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide.

As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in her life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on her mentally, emotionally or physically.

Discuss the way that she manages or deals with her problems, or any problems that occur in her life.

Discuss any patterns you have noticed in her behavior especially concerning her disease.

Discuss any part of her life where she seems stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of her disease, or as the disease evolved.

Describe her childhood and the kind of environment she grew up in, with reference to her relationships with her family, her school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.

If her earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:

1. The specific foods that she craves (not just like) or hates
2. The specific drinks that she craves or hates
3. What her sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects her
5. What kinds of things in the environment she is particularly sensitive to
6. What is her general level of energy is like

9. Also give these details

a) Body type and build
b) Skin colour and texture
c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on
d) Odour of sweat, body, stool, flatus, urine
e) Colour of stool, urine, sweat

10. Give any reactions to vaccines or medical drugs.

Homoeopathic prescribing relies on details - lots of them. See how you go with this.
