Q.

Frequent urination

For the past 5 days I've noticed that my 8 year old girl is urinating more frequently. She rushes to the toilet between almost after every 30 minutes, however she's not drinking a lot of liquids and there are no accidents. What could be the problem?

It is very likely that your daughter has a urinary system (bladder) infection. She should be seen by a doctor. Her urine must be tested for possible infection. If she does have urinary infection, she will need to be treated with the correct antibiotic. You should take her to a doctor tomorrow. In the meantime make sure that she drinks plenty of water as this is most important.
