My 3yr old boys urine stream always starts out cloudy. Ive

Resolved Question:

My 3yr old boy's urine stream always starts out cloudy. I've watched him peeing, and It seems to be cloudy only at the beginning of his stream, right when it comes out, not throughout his urination. He has never complained of any kind of pain while peeing. What could be causing this? I've never experienced this with my older 2 children.

Hello there,
Please be patient, as I may be in the operating room, with a patient, or driving but will get back to you ASAP.

Ok, thanks.

Sorry for the delay. Here is the best thing to do. The next time he is at the pediatrician, just have his urine checked at the office to see if it is infected or not. There are not really many things this can be. This sounds like it will not be a serious problem and likely nothing. Usually infected urine will cause pain , burning, or fevers. Sounds like your son is fine. Nothing urgent likely needs to be done. Just have a urinary tract infection ruled out at his next visit. Hope this helps.

His next annual isn't until Jan 2012. Do you think I should wait that long, as long as there's not pain/ change?

If he is doing fine and you don't see him grimace with urination as well as fevers or some other problem, then it should be fine. If something changes then definitely get him in sooner but sounds like he is okay.
