Many things: There are many things this could be, both benign and infectious. This is a discussion best had face to face with a physician rather than online, so that specifics can be asked.

Yeast infection: This sounds like a vaginal yeast infection. They are typically caused by an organism called candida albicans. Over the counter treatment is with anti-fungal medications such as Nystatin or miconazole.Creams. Oral Diflucan (fluconazole) is available by prescription only.

Vaginitis/osis: White thick discharge from the vaginal area is typical but not unique for fungal/yeast infection. If the patient is diabetic, they do not play fair symptoms wise, so i try and rule out other non fungal causes.

Dr. Sharon Gilliland

Yes: Newborns often have swollen genitals from mom's hormones and sometimes related to the trauma of coming through the birth canal. Older babies should not have swollen genitals. Suddenly swollen genitals in combination with fussiness or definite pain should be considered a medical emergency.

Follow the direction: With the med , it should tell you how far to insert the applicator, needs to get far enough up to stay in but you do not want to go too far or you can hurt yourself.
