Mom is 91 years old, bedridden, and incontinent. She has been having secretions found on her diapers which is yellowish-green and appears to be coming vaginally. Out of concern, she was taken to the ER for a complete UTI workup and all test came back clear. NO UTI. It happened again and since the doctor didn't return a call, I drive into the doctors office with the diaper and the P-Stick. They didn't want to see it but put her on an antibiotic for 10 days and it cleared; but has returned. There are no other symptoms familiar to that of a UTI; but just curious if anyone else has seen this? She is clean and changed religiously and has a nurse who bathes and monitors. Nothing found on the internet as well. Thanks!

Look to your diet or any supplements you may be taking: This color is usually a sign of an infection, but if you know you’re in the clear (as in it’s a one-off occurrence), what you eat could affect the color. Some people report this color change occurring whenever they take new vitamins or try certain foods.

See is there are any urogynecologists in your area. Give them a call.

Make sure the doctors are ordering a culture... you may want to take mom to an Infectious Disease doctor to have a Urinalysis AND Culture performed. Some docs tend to skip the Culture portion.. I've been there with my mom as well. Good Luck.

UTI doesn't come from vagina. Can the doctor examine her?
