Frequent Excessive urination is more common in boys than in girls and pollakiuria is more common in children than adults.
What Are The Causes?A number of things may cause pollakiuria, or frequent urination in children or adults. Pollakiuria could be caused by a psychological issue.
Lastly, daytime urinary frequency in children and adults may also be caused by a partial obstruction, for example a prostatic enlargement.
TreatmentTreatment of frequent or excessive urination will vary depending on what is causing pollakiuria.
If the cause of pollakiuria is stress or emotional development the child or adults emotional well being should be studied to pinpoint the exact cause.
Once whatever is causing the pollakiuria or frequent urination in the child or adult is removed from the child or adults life, they should return to a more normal urination pattern as factors inducing stress in the child or adults life are removed.
In the case of partial obstruction, or prostatic enlargement, treating the obstruction would be the only way to clear the blockage and allow for normal urination patterns to return.
