Maintaining Kids' Urologic Health

By: Urology Care Foundation | Posted on: 02 Mar 2015

Bedtime

Before bedtime, limit fluids at night and ensure that your child uses the bathroom right before bed to prevent bedwetting.

Proper Hygiene for Girls

For girls, teach them to wipe from front to back. Wiping front to back will keep bacteria from entering the vagina and reduce the likelihood of urinary tract infections.

Protection for Boys

For boys, make sure they begin wearing an athletic supporter or "cup" as soon as they are involved in any kind of activity that could lead to groin injury, such as playing sports (Read "Ask a Urologist: Athletic Cups and Supports," from UrologyHealth extra Spring 2014 for more information").
