Enuresis is the technical term for inappropriate leaking of urine dependent on age and time. Diurnal or day and night wetting needs investigation in any child from age 3-4 years, if just nocturnal then >4 years in girls and > 6 years in boys.

NB: Bedwetting is virtually never a psychological problem and though it can cause embarrassment, and reassurance is essential, talking about peeing won’t fix it, but actions often will.

  • Bladder relaxants
  • Urine production reduction
