Paediatrician

This problem is called eniuresis and is a very big problem for an 11 year old boy.You say that he has had treatment which did not help. There are many kinds of treatment available and one which will help him will be found if he sees the correct expert. He should be treated by a paediatric renal expert [paediatric nephrologist]. There are experts in all the main centres in SA. It is essential that your son is seen by this kind of specialist. This problem cannot be allowed to continue.
