Urinary Tract Infection in Adults (cont.)
In this Article
What are the symptoms of UTI?
Not everyone with a UTI has symptoms, but most people get at least some
symptoms. These may include a frequent urge to urinate and a painful, burning
feeling in the area of the bladder or urethra during urination. It is not
unusual to feel bad all
In children, symptoms of a urinary infection may be overlooked or attributed to another disorder. A UTI should be considered when a child or infant seems irritable, is not eating normally, has an unexplained fever that does not go away, has incontinence or loose bowels, or is not thriving. Unlike adults, children are more likely to have fever and no other symptoms. This can happen to both boys and girls. The child should be seen by a doctor if there are any questions about these symptoms, especially a change in the child's urinary pattern.
