What are the signs of a kidney infection?

I think that my toddler is developing a kidney infection.


Answer by  kdem (551)

Kidney infection usually occurs after a bladder infection and pain in the back and frequent urination are usually the first signs, fever will also be present.

Bladder infection symptoms include frequent burning urination, sometimes blood tinged. Urgency and inability to make it to the bathroom may accompany the burning. Untreated bladder infections can affect the kidneys.

Look for a fever, sore lower back, and a reluctance to urinate. Also, if you can collect some urine in a clear cup, look to see if it's cloudy or if there is visible blood. If any of this occurs, take your toddler to your pediatrician. He or she may recommend you see a specialist.

Fever, irritability and loss of appetite may indicate that the kidneys are infected. Pain in the abdomen, pelvic area or under the side of the rib cage.
