Q.

Almost 4 yrs, itchy privates and sore when she goes to the toliet

My daughter is almost 4. She is saying she is sore and it burns when she wee''s. She seems to be frequenting the toilet often in short space of time. Complains her privates are itchy and very sore. Not very red in the area at the moment. What cream can I use? Should I give probotics? Is it necessary to take her to a paediatrician?

Paediatrician

This is not a simple question to answer as there are several possible causes for your daughter's symptoms. She may have a bladder infection or she may have a candida infection or she may have a worm infection with threadworms.Please take her to be seen by her paediatrician.
