3 year old with discharge and is getting smelly

I have a three year old girl who has a white(ish) discharge and is a bit smelly. She is not complaining about any discomforts, and she sometimes develops a rash around her labia. The discharge sometimes would pack up around the top of her clit, when I wipe it off it is not smelly at all . Is there anthing I can treat her with

This discharge may be due to a candida infection. This often happens after a recent antibiotic. It would be worthwhile giving your little girl a probiotic such as Probiflora Children's once daily for 10 days. Apply Nystatin Cream to her vaginal area twice a day. If the discharge does not clear after 10 days she should be seen by her doctor.
