Enuresis requires in: Hi, its understandable that you are concerned. Your son is experiencing enuresis, and there are many possible causes besides psychological. I suggest you start at a GP for a urine test to check for infection. If that is clear then he will be referred to a urologist to investigate any abnormal structure of his urinary anatomy.
