My son had blood and urine tests done. Urine showed numerous bacteria, blood tests normal. The pediatrician prescribed furagin. The urine was collected in a special bag for small children. When pissing, my son starts with a "balloon" - is it not related to the narrowing of the foreskin? Was furagin necessary? If a child has a narrowed foreskin at 15 months of age, should you worry about it and take any steps? Do you try to pull your foreskin back while bathing? What if it fails?
In infancy, the foreskin is physiologically attached (so-called physiological phimosis) and does not require any treatment or maneuvers. Whether there is a urinary tract infection that requires antibacterial treatment is determined by the presence of changes in the general urine (pyuria, i.e. a large number of white blood cells in the urine) and a positive culture (presence of bacteria). The urine culture from the pouch is culture from the skin of the penis and the surrounding area, and does not mean that bacteria are in the urine, especially if the child is not hot and he althy, and the total urine test is normal. If the total urine test was not performed, but only the culture from the urine from the bag, the child should not be treated even with Furagin. I advise you to do a general urine test - if it is correct, then stop cultures and discontinue unnecessary treatment.
