Q.

5 Year old''s private parts always red and sore

Hi doc

I would like to know which cream etc I can give my 5 year old daughter. She always complain about her private parts, and when I have a look, it''s red (inflamed).
I tought her how to wipe after she''s gone to the loo, I also check she wipes proply, but it''s a battle, I don''t know what to do.
Someone mentioned I need to bath her in course-salt every night.

Your advice will be appreciated

your daughter's rash may be due to a candida infection especially if she has had antibiotics recently.Give her a probiotic for 10 days and apply Nystatin cream to her rash twice daily. Also to be on the safe side you need to give her a single dose of Vermox worm syrup 5ml in case she has a pinworm infection.

Shame Aims, I''m sure the other kids don''t really see the area though so won''t tease her about it.
