My 2 yr old daughter is having painful urination after swimming in a pool also. She also has had uti's 3 times. Is it safe for her to continue weekly?

In brief: Is your question

whether or not it's safe for her to swim weekly? Have her UTI's been related to her swimming? If not, it's certainly safe for her to swim. Make sure she's changing out of her wet bathing suit as soon as possible after swimming.
Being in the wet suit will not cause an infection, but can cause irritation, which can cause symptoms like a UTI.Please contact her pediatrician to discuss further.
