5 year old urination issues
Within the last several months my son, who will be 5 next month, has been randomly urinating in his bedroom and in the family room. He says he can`t make it to the bathroom and doesn`t want to wet his pants. We try to get him to go to the bathroom often but he says he doesn`t have to go and refuses to try.
It is best to start with a thorough history and physical exam. Please schedule your child to see his primary care provider and discuss your concerns with them.
