Hi. My three year old has had it on and off for about 3 month. Area around her vagina gets really red and sometimes itchy. There's no or v. little discharge. Occasionally, she has pain urinating. We did a urine test which came back negative. We did a course of monistat to rule out yeast infection - it is still coming back.
I though she could be reacting to chocolate, so she is off it altogether... Still, it came back again.
She is potty trained during the day and naps, but still in diapers at night...
She had piples on her bottom a year ago and they went away on their own... Now I think maybe the two are related??
Any ideas/thoughts/referrals much appreciated! We live in DC. Maybe you know of a doc we should see next.
If she is drinking a lot of juice or lemonade that could be the cause. Sometimes the Acid in those drinks mixed with urine can cause a rash. If you think that is case push more water. Also try cranberry juice & water mixed ( half & half). Good Luck
My daughter is almost 3 and gets the same problem sometimes. I use a q-tip, and put neosporin on her urethra and vaginal opening. It usually goes away in a day. She also still wears diapers at night, and has more problems with redness and pimples if she wears her diaper very long after she gets up. Also certain bath products aggravate it. Soaking in the bathtub too much can also cause problems, especially if she likes bubbles.
