Please help. Doc wants me to circumcise my 3 yo ds. - Page 5

I just thought I'd update people that it wasn't a uti even, just an infection of the penis. I stopped all the neosporin nonsense, and now feel confident about taking care of ds. Thanks again to everyone.

The doc took a urine sample and had it tested in a lab. I don't know what kind of infection it was. The impression I got was that whatever bacteria causes uti infects the penis first, moves up the urinary tract, and then finally to the kidneys. Is this not right? What should I be looking for? Gosh, thanks for your interest. I'm sure I'll find whatever you have to say useful.

I haven't read all the replies, but wanted to share that I had a terrible UTI after the cath for my csection - that went undxed for about 6 weeks. I had other systemic infections and the UTI was unnoticed. I just kept getting sicker instead of healing.

So when it was caught, the spectrum anaysis was done - and mis-read! So I had another couple of weeks of the wrong abx when that was found out.

I have learned that it's rather common for docs not to read the spectrum correctly - and that's if they even bother to do one - or to misunderstand how to correctly Rx based on the test. So if he gets further UTIs, just know that many MDs are really clueless. They don't advertize that fact. :

I got much worse taking the wrong abx. I have worked to get my body balanced again, and in the future will use only natural remedies for infection. I have learned that they are not just for "mild" cases, but when given my real natural doctors, are a billion times more effective than the poorly Rxed abx that are so common now. My chinese herbalist has never failed to heal me fast from very debilitating infections.

Hugs to your little boy. I hope he's feeling better...
