Dr Uzair :

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.

Dr Uzair :

Is she thirsty as well?

Dr Uzair :

Please enter chat and use reply to interact.

Customer:

No not at all there is nothing different just the increased need to pee

Dr Uzair :

Okay.

Dr Uzair :

This is usually a benign entity of unknown etiology and resolves on its own.

Dr Uzair :

It is fairly common in toddlers.

Dr Uzair :

Having said that, you still need to have her evaluated in detail.

Dr Uzair :

A urinalysis is warranted and a physical examination is prudent.

Dr Uzair :

Instead of plain water, you should give her an oral rehydration solution like Pedialyte. Ordinary water will flush out her electrolytes and cause problems.

Customer:

Thank you i will contact our gp asap

Dr Uzair :

It was a pleasure to assist you.

Dr Uzair :

Please do leave a positive rating for the service.

Dr Uzair :

Best wishes.
