  • Illness or injury to the bladder or urethra
  • Inherited factors
  • Physical abnormalities

There are many treatment options available, including medication, behavioral therapy, and surgery. If you think your child may have bedwetting, it's important to talk to your pediatrician.

There are many different treatment options for bedwetting, depending on the underlying cause. If the child has an overactive bladder, then medications or bladder instillation may be necessary. If the child has a neurological cause for their wetting, such as pyelonephritis, surgery may be necessary to correct the underlying problem. If the child just wet the bed because they're tense and anxious about it, some self-help techniques, like pacing and deep breathing exercises, may work.
