3yr old Frequent Urination

My son is 3 yrs 7 months old, for the last 5 days now, he has had an issue with frequent urination. He will urinate then need to go 4 or so more times almost immediately afterwards. Then there will be a couple of hours gap and he will urinate and then repeat 4 or 5 times again. He hasn''t complained of any pain or discomfort when urinating.

We saw a GP on Wed they took a urine sample and said everything is fine.

He currently has an upper respirtory tract infection (although I don''t think it''s related) and his has been on pegicol for the last 2.5 yrs for chronic constipation.

Any help would be appreciated.

This is something new, so the likelihood that your son has developed a urinary system infection is a possibility. Please take him to your doctor so that his urine can be tested for a possuible infection.
