My 6 yr old daughter has been saying her vagina is itchy but I've checked no redness or white discharge. Could she still have thrush??

My 6 yr old daughter has been saying her vagina is itchy but I've checked no redness or white discharge. Could she still have thrush??

Probably not: Before puberty, an internal yeast infection is unlikely. Irritants are usually the cause. Make sure no bubble baths or excessive soap use during bathing. Make sure underwear washed in sensitive skin products. Drinking excessive juice can cause the urine to have too much acid and irritate that area. Sometimes pinworms can move to that area so check for rectal itching. Apply vaseline to help itching ...Read more

Troublesome issue: In my location, such a statement by a 5 yr old would lead to a forensic (evidence style) interview by a specialist in child sexual exploitation and a thorough investigation of the family. Kids rarely make up stories about something so specific, although the kid may view rough washing of her genitals in this way. Most dads avoid any contact with this area in a 5 yo. ...Read more

Possible Abscesses: It sounds like you may have some abscesses with or without cellulitis. You may need antibiotics and possible drainage of the abscesses if they are fully formed. In the meantime analgesia like paracetamol and ibuprofen will help but also running the area under hot water and soap as often as it is convenient should help. You should let a doctor take a look at it. ...Read more

My 2.5 year old daughter has blisters on her bottom, she only wears a nappy at nighttime and mentioned yesterday she had a sore bum after going to the toilet what could be the cause?

Skin sores: Skin is the major protection of our delicate internal tissues from a harsh environment, it is susceptible to injury itself. Feces/urine are very irritating as well as constant exposure to moisture reduces protective skin oils and sets the skin up for injury from friction from the nappy and rubbing her bottom when moving. Change her more frequently and apply good protective skin cream frequently. ...Read more

Not likely to be: Lupus. Any activity or change to body that increases blood flow to an area can make the area appear red, especially if she has sensitive skin or is fair-skinned. If she is otherwise well, I would not be concerned. I would recommend discussing this with her doctor the next time you are there. ...Read more

Probably not: It is not clear how old your daughter is, but I assume she is of young age. Vaginal irritation is very common in girls. Scratching oneself is possible but not all that common.
