Q.

3yr old baldder control

My 3yr old has been fully potty trained for about a year now and has been dry at night for about 5 months. She has recently (2 to 3 weeks) been struggling to get to the loo on time and is now soaked every morning (1 week) She "leaks & drips" which creates wet panties and pants prior to every loo visit regardless if we take her every hour and watch her carefully for signs of a full bladder. The last week has seen us at the emergency room and doctors for an unknown virus (although not a "sick chid")- leading to her taking cortizone, antihistamines and antibiotics. Is the bladder problem related to the medication and "virus", assuming it will then pass - or should I see a doctor with her?

She seems to have a urinary tract/bladder infection and must be investigated for this and treated if necessary.
