Another thought: If a kid wipes back to front or by chance there can be foreign material (feces, toilet tissue,etc. )retained within the folds of the labia or within the vagina. If present this can/will lead to chronic discharge and staining. A simple exam may reveal the issue at the office but occasionally these kids are examined under anesthesia to find, remove foreign material.
