Not advisable to get children to use this without the doctor first diagnosing that it is a fungal infection. The burning could be due to other things as well. Please get her seen by a doctor and they will prescribe what is appropriate.

You should consult her pediatrician first. She may not have a fungal infection. Better to be safe than to be sorry. If she has had a lot of sugar, she could have a yeast infection but the pediatrician might prescribe something different or more appropriate for her age. Not all medications used for adults can be used for the pediatric patient. She could be having an allergic reaction if she has been exposed to a new/different bath soap or shampoo or a new/different laundry detergent on her clothing. If she did not wipe herself after urinating in the toilet, her wet underwear could cause irritation to the skin and thus the burning. If this is the case, then a simple solution is Balmex (sp?) an ointment used for diaper rash. So as you can see, there are a variety of reasons a 7 year old could be burning on the outside. Please error on the side of caution and take her to her pediatrician. You would not want to prolong her suffering by using the wrong modality to treat her burning. I hope she feels better soon.
