Weak urine stream: A weak urinary stream need to be evaluated by a pediatric urologist, a voiding cystourethrogram need to be done to check for narrowing or any form of obstruction. So please see your pediatrician & request a referral to a pediatric urologist. Good luck.

Usually is: How much of a problem it is depends on the findings.By age 5 circumcised males may develop a narrowing of the urine outlet of the penis.It is less common for uncircumcised. If they have a mild inflammation at that site, conservative treatment with meds may improve it.Often it provides enough of a problem that the kid needs to have the outlet widened(dilated) by a urologist (under anesthesia
