Dripping effect

6 yr old daughter, complain about, her vagina dripping- tested neg to UTI. She constantly picks there, because she thinks that she is wetting her pants. She is ashmatic and uses hayfever and ashma meds- Seretide &  loratine. It is embarassing, when she suddenly grabs at her panties at the most inconvenient times. Her panties are sometimes wet, but she says she can feel the droplets coming down. She has good personal hygiene. Please advise

There must be a reason for your daughter having this problem.You mention that her urine has been tested and is negative for any infection.She may still have a candida infection which may not show up on the urine test.Give her a probiotic such as Probiflora Children's 1 chewable tablet daily for 10 days. Also give her Citro-Soda Orange granules 5ml in half a glass of water twice daily for 10 days. If she is not better after 10 days it would be best to ask your doctor to see her again.
