my three year old son has vesicoureteral reflux. what can you tell me about this condition?

Dr. Jonathan Jassey
Pediatrics 17 years experience
Reflux: Just like people having GI reflux, in this case urine is refluxing back from the bladder to the kidneys. There are 5 different stages to it. Depending on the stage will dictate what happens next. Sometimes it's managed by a low dose antibiotic, if severe enough without improvement over time, might need surgery. Should be monitored closely by a urologist.

A member asked:

Will my son's strange reaction following antibiotics last.

4 doctor answers11 doctors weighed in
Dr. Irwin Berkowitz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: Allergic reactions to antibiotics, ie hives can last up to two weeks after stopping the medication. Antibiotic induced diarrhea can improve soon after discontinuing the antibiotics or linger. There are other nonspecific rashes that are not an allergy but an interaction between the antibiotic and a virus that can last for days. Behavioral reactions to colorings or flavors abate qickly.

My son looks like he has dandruff but the dandruff won't wash off. Are they nits?

Possibly: Dandruff is flakes of skin, so should wash off. If it does not, it certainly can be nits, as these are the egg casings of head lice and are glued to the hair shaft. If his head itches, or other signs of irritation, it should be checked out. Headlice are very infectious!

Infant vomiting: Vomitting infants can be serious as it would not take long for them to get dehydrated. Vomiting can be a sign of other illness such as upper respiratory infections, ear infections and not just GI illness, best to have infants evaluated as soon as possible.

A 39-year-old female asked:

My 17year old son just had a 12 lead ECG done it showed t wave inversions in ii, iii, avf & v4. Could the barium from an ugi series cause this?

Dr. Vance Harris
Family Medicine 37 years experience
Nonspecific: T wave inversion may be part of a normal ekg and has to interpreted by a doctor. Inverted t wave is normal in iii and sometimes other leads without meaning anything alarming. Have the doctor let you know what they think. The ekg interpretation can change with age as well so you need expertise to read them at this age.
