7 doctors agree

In brief: No

A kid peeing in his/her underclothes is not likely to have any adverse health effects on other children, other than the yuck factor for some.

In brief: No

Urine is usually sterile (no germs) and in the rare cases where the kid has a UTI , other kids are at no risk being around that kid.
