Eczema in the Vaginal...What is the best treatment for vaginal Eczema ...for My Daughter (4.5 years old) ..she pull off her pants..Need help?

See her pediatrician: I'm not sure why you think your 4 1/2 year old daughter has eczema in her vagina (is she itching at the area?) but it would need to be evaluated by her pediatrician. There are other causes for itching such as a yeast infection (was she recently on antibiotics, for instance). Don't guess at the diagnosis - have her seen so she can be made comfortable more quickly :)

I've had folliculitis in the vaginal area for years now, what is the best treatment for the scarring and itch it has created?

I've had folliculitis in the vaginal area for years now, what is the best treatment for the scarring and itch it has created?

Stop shaving?: If you have been shaving the area, stop. That may be the main problem, perhaps the only problem. If pubic area hair control remains important, consider a hair removal cream instead. If not shaving, other factors may be important -- for example, you may be carrying virulent staph or strep. If you haven't yet seen a dermatologist, consider it now. She or he should be able to sort this out. Good luck

Patient specific: The best surgical treatment is one that is tailored to your specific findings and complaints. One surgery does not fit all patients.

The best surgery is one done to your specific needs by a surgeon who does these surgeries often and has experience.

Here's help: If the laceration is small (less than 1/2 inch) and if the eye is not involved or the lid margin, and you do not suspect infection, then you can treat it by cleaning it, and taping the edges together. If any of the above conditions are present you should see your ophthalmologist to prevent scarring and damage to the vision.

Best treatment of vaginal ecoli?

Best treatment of vaginal ecoli?

No best solution: Ecoli bacteria comes from yourself; your own GI tract. I would begin by paying closer attention to hygenic practices, like always wiping from the font to the back when you urinate/move your bowels. I wouldn't douche but using a peri-bottle to irrigate your vulva & perianal area might help. Utilizing intravaginal preparations like luvena may be helpful in keeping the balance of good & bad bacteria.

Soap & water: Wash all cuts as soon as possible with soap and water, or at least flush with water if unable to wash, and remove any visible foreign bodies. Then cover with polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) (not neosporin!) & a bandage, bringing the wound as closely together as possible, and apply pressure if bleeding continues. If large/deep, over a joint, still bleeding, or difficulties beyond the wound, seek medical care.
