The urinary tract includes the kidneys,
ureter, bladder, and urethra. The kidneys make pee, then the ureter carries the
pee to the bladder, where it is stored. The urethra carries pee out of the body when
you urinate (pee). A urinary tract infection (UTI) is when
one of these parts (usually the bladder) gets infected.
You might have a UTI if it hurts to pee, you have to pee a lot, your pee looks
cloudy or bloody, or if your pee smells bad. You also may have a fever, lower belly
pain, or back pain. Kids with UTIs usually take antibiotics
to get better.
