Q.

Discharge

My 9 year old daughter seems to have a vaginal discharge. She showed it to me after school and it was already dry but appeared to be white in colour. Is this normal for her age?She has started going through puberty but is not menstruating.

This may be simply due to early puberty.As long as it is not causing any itching and is not yellow in colour and does not have any noticeable smell there is no need for concern.
