I did take her to the doctor for that rash in her virgina then he gave her the cream to be applied on her.It did go away and now the cream isfinished it came back. I also took her to the doctor in september when she started screaming, kicking her feet and hands and then rolling her eyes for about 10 to 15 minutes which made me think that she has feads, then the doctor said she still young to have them and he gave me some medication, after that she took a month without doing that again. she resently did that this past weekend then i took her to the doctor then he said she must go for tests to checkup.Please help

Paediatrician

Your daughter appears to have a candida rash on her vagina. Give her these medicines: Nystatin Oral solution 1ml 4 times a day for 5 days by mouth, Reuteri infant drops 1ml daily for 10 days by mouth. Apply Nystain Cream to her vagina at least twice day until the rash has cleared. If it does not clear or it returns you must take your baby to a paediatrician. At the same time ask the paediatrician about her screaming episodes.
