See Peds Gyn: You will need to see a pediatric gynecologist for surgical options. This should be very treatable.

Most handled simply : Your regular pediatrician of fp may have experience in dealing with common labial fusion. This process, similar to when pages of a book stick together, the labia minora can do the same & be a bit difficult to separate. Sometimes this can be teased open in the office or application of an estrogen cream for a period will loosen the bond.I've never seen one fail to respond to simple methods.

Yes: Several issues of concern will need to be addressed; age of your child, environmental exposures to include daycare attendance and secondary smoke, growth and development, and your child's ability to ward off infections. A visit with your pcp will allow a thorough assessment to determine the cause and consequently the appropriate management to promote your child's health.

See a specialist: Lymphedema nurse specialists can be unbelievably helpful in providing emotional support and counseling, education about skin care, and also in providing treatment for lymphedema with massage and wrapping techniques. Even chronic, massively swollen limbs can see dramatic results with non-invasive limb reduction techniques.
