Q.

7yr daugther with possible thrush

Hi Doc

My daughter had thrush last year due to the bubblebath she used. Now she only baths in plain water and a cap of dettol.

Yesterday out of the blue she was complaining about going to the loo but feels like drops coming out after she is done, what could this be?

This sounds like a urinary system or bladder infection.It would be best not to use Dettol in her bath.Please ask your doctor to see your daughter and to test her urine.
