Paediatrician

Bedwetting is a rather common problem and is known by the medical term of 'enuresis'. Enuresis is the cause of a great deal of unhappiness and embarrassment for a child of your daughter's age. Treatment should really be started ASAP. It would be best to take her to be seen by either a paediatrician or by a paediatric urologist. There are very effective treatments available that will help your daughter to overcome this problem.
