Retention of the urine frequently occurs in young infants, especially shortly after birth. A warm cloth may be placed over the region of the bladder, and two globules of Aconite given once in two hours; if after two or three doses no relief is obtained, Pulsatilla may be administered in the same manner.

For other urinary difficulties, see affections of urinary organs, chapter IX (Affection Of The Urinary And Genital Organs).
