Paediatrician

Your son is now in the age group where we have to take notice of his bed wetting problem which we call enuresis. You know that his urinary system is normal. Simple measures have not helped to stop him from wetting his bed. There are many treatments for enuresis available these days. Please take him to see your paediatrician who will help him to get over this problem.
