Infant son was diagnosed with a UTI using urine collected with a catheter. The results showed e.Coli count of 100, 000 cfus/ml. Is this a lot?

Yes: Girls get uti's more than boys because their urethra is shorter. However, as infants, boys also have shorter urethras. It is important that the infection gets treated and a repeat urine sample shows no bacteria. Also, make sure diapers get changed quickly so bacteria don't get a chance to cause infection. If your son has recurrent uti's then there may be a problem that a specialist could handle. ...Read more

7 month old baby had high fever/wbc. Diagnosed with UTI from ecoli. A few days after treatment, some of his fingers started peeling a bit. Cause?

Hard to say: Sometimes bacteria can produce toxins that cause skin peeling but E coli is unlikely to do so. Also some antibiotics can cause skin rashes so it is possible it is the treatment. Or it could be completely unrelated and a completely different problem. If it does not improve, discuss with the baby's pediatrician. ...Read more
