View Full Version : 7 year old with hot pee should I worry?
09-07-2011, 10:59 AM
My 7 year old daughter told me that some foods give her hot pee....should I worry about her having IC? My 18 year old was home for 2 weeks from College and was having a bout with urgency and frequency....am I being paranoid or should I have them checked out? I've had bladder issues since I was as young as my 7 year old but I never complained to my mom. I'm wondering should I keep and eye on these two and hope for the best or mention this to their docs when they have a physical:help:?

It's probably nothing to worry about, but I think it would be a good idea to mention it to their doctor --- out of their hearing.

You might want to make sure that your younger one is drinking plenty of water.

I just wanted to state that I don't think you have gotten paranoid. Besides, you have got IC; therefore, it came to your mind easily enough.(or I reckon so) I don't know about hot pee to much. You could make sure they don't have an infection. Otherwise, I was thinking what Donna had posted as well. www.icawareness.org

I would be more concerned with the 18 year old. Urgency and frequency are classic IC if there is no underlying condition like an infection or stones, etc. Many, many people have some symptoms of IC but they aren't very bad or don't interfere with their life, so they never get them checked out.
My suggestion is that you see if the hot pee happens again with your 7 year old, and then maybe mention it to the Doc.
As for the 18 year old, talk with her to see how much of a bother her symptoms are and consider a check up.
Good luck and hopefully they're OK.

I'm watching them closely. So far my 18 year old has only had the one bout with urgency(keeping my fingers crossed). My 7 year old is very sensitive to soap so I have to buy her special soap without fragrances. She hasn't had hot pee since. Thank you for thel input!

When my D was young she had one episode of redness and burning I think on the outside which gave her reluctance to pee. One time she drank strong coffee and she said it gave her an uncomfortable feeling. Now she says she usually wakes up early and has to pee and pees a lot in general. She is in college and sexually active and I worry,too. Of course, if symptoms crept up what exactly would we do? I will not subject her to any internal exams that could exacerbate anything (as did me with dilations). She does not seem to have problems with cranberry but I gave her cranberry pills to try and she thinks one made her pee. I'm trying to get her to take Vitamin D, probiotics like femdolphilous and now I'm thinking she should take d-mannose if active with the boyfriend.
So that leads me to believe that you could do some detective work that way by seeing if any particular drinks increase frequency and certainly see if you can find out if there is any sex, because one infection can be the true beginning of IC. Also how to keep pelvic floor dysfunction from occuring if you think something is truly developing. I would look to that before subjecting a young tender bladder to a hydo extension exam. And would you think elmiron can ward it off, that is another question.

I totally agree, trouble shooting is the key! I will make sure to keep a list of foods and drink that affect her.
I remember holding my pee as a child and the pain I would have when I did finally pee! I had terrible bladder infections as a child with lots of flank pain! This makes me worry if my girls will go through the same thing.
I too would not subject them to any invasive testing at this point!
Thanks for sharing!

I had my symptoms from when I was really little. The most that I can remember is that I would get out of the bathroom in the morning and I would just squat on the floor and tell my mom that it hurt and I would just cry. At this time of course we didnt know what IC was so at the time my mom just put cream on me since I was little. I hope that helps for the little one. Maybe my experience will help you see other signs or something! :)
