Q.

Bed-wetting

my son of 6 has developed this severe problem of bed-wetting. no matter how much we monitor it, it just goes. is there an underlying problem i should be concerned with or is this just a phase which he will outgrow. he used to have heavy nightmares to extent he would run to our room from his sleep. could this also be elevating the problem. we have limited his intake of liquids after hours but it does not subside. he does not complain of any aches or itchiness when urinating. Last nite i gave him a little haarlemensis in case he may be developing a bladder problem.
