Q.

3 yearl old with smelly vigina

Hi Doc

My daughter is 3 year old, and she''s got a smelly vigina. I took her to the doctor and she was given the antibiotics. It stopped for some time and recently it came back again. What could be the cause i am getting really worried now cause she is too young for such things.

Will really appreciate your response.

You are correct, your little girl is indeed too young to have this problem. She really needs to be carefully examined by a doctor as there may be something quite obvious causing this problem. It would be best to take her to see a GP who will examine her carefully as this can be quite traumatic for little girls of this age.
