My little girl has had a tiny bit of blood in her underwear. I am so so worried what this could be from. Has anyone else had experience of this? I am phoning the docs first thing. She did have a UTI as a baby, and has recently complained of tummy aches. Do you think it could be that?

If you are frightened then going out on the internet to find out everything it could be is going to make you worse. Leave it till the doctor has seen her.

I know. I have just done that and it has totally freaked me out. All terrible.

My eldest son had a drop of blood in his pants before, turned out to be a UTI. Other than that, could she have scratched herself?

I don't know. I asked her if it hurt down there and she said no. I said does it hurt to wee, and she said no. But she has complained a lot of tummy ache this week. I will phone asap to get an appointment.

Honestly. TURN OFF THE COMPUTER and wait till you see the doctor. Please!!

I feel great sympathy for you, Clare - your mind must be racing. But you are looking for reassurance we can't give you. Go have a cup of tea and five chocolate biscuits, and try to keep calm till you see the doctor.

Went to doc. She has a UTI - doctor checked her sample, and said there is definitely blood in her urine and some infection. She is on antibiotics. I think it must be due to her first term at school and wiping herself. Poor little thing. No wonder she kept saying she is tired and has a tummy ache. My poor baby.

Thanks for your support last night. The internet can be a nightmare!

What a relief. I'm VERY pleased it's not more serious. Although still, poor little mite..

I was actually thinking about you today - worrying!

Thanks Lindsay. I was so worried, esp. after looking on the internet.

I'm so glad that's all sorted, Clare. smile
