It can be soap, pin worms, an allergy to your laundry detergent, or something a bit worse. I freaked when my young daughter complained, took her to pediatrician, he said try to not use soap in the vaginal area for a few days, see if it stops, you can have her wash her rear, but keep soap away from the vaginal area for just a couple of days, see if it stops. If you have reason to suspect it is not one of the first 3 things I mentioned, talk to her pediatrician and keep her safe. There is a gently feminine wash you could get for her and use that, it is by summers eve, but most stores have their own brand, it is gentle. Keeping you in my prayers. Patti
Mary is right! Bubble bath is way too harsh for little vaginas (even grown up ones for that matter), soap can cause it as well as using strong bleach in the laundry when washing underpants. I prefer to use Baby Magic baby bath as a cleanser for that area. It is much gentler than soap. She may have just irritation or she may have a full blown UTI. Please take her to the pediatrician. I got my first UTI at the age of 2. Occasionally burning in a young girl can signal previous molestation but that is not the only cause-there are many other causes. If you suspect molestation, keep her safe, and enlist the help of the pediatrician. They can do an exam and tell if there are signs that someone is doing something they should not be.
Getthenews don't freak ut little girls get this problem all the time. She has a yti a bladder infection r a yeast infection. Little girls have a hard time cleaning themselve properly. A squirt bottle for them works nice t spray themselves off. Flushable wipes alsoo usefull. Don't give bubble baths actually showers are better so she doesn't sit in soapy water. Use a gentle cleaning bar like dove for showers not perfumed. They say ivory is good but burns me so I don't use. And make an apt fr the dr for an antibitic they will need a small urine sample not much. If she is having a prob urinating have her drink 1 or 2 glasses of water to fill the bladder b4 urinating that will make her feel better. This is a pretty common prob for little growing girls don't worry she will be ok!!! I'm sorry to say this about the other quote malestaion was a jump in which I really don't think should have been in your mind.
So please don't let that horrible thought linger in your mind... good luck and best wishes call the doc don't be freaked. I promise its ok jaime }litlmomma
