My 6 yr old dtr has suffered from two separate genital staph infections and recurrent uti's in the past yr. The dr is referring her for some mildly invasive (cathetarization) kidney tests due to the uti's. She does not seem to be connecting the two though it seems unlikely it would be a coincidence she is suddenly experiencing these two conditions involving the same area in the past year. Is there a connection between staph and uti's? should I take her to an infectious disease dr first? Like many 6 yr olds she probably does not wipe herself super well though we have worked on this. (and no, she is not being irritated due to abuse of any kind). Thank you!
