Paediatrician

Obviously a child of this age should not have a blood discharge from the vagina. It is definitely not cancer and should not be hormonal either at this age.There are several possible causes such as possible sexual abuse which must be investigated. Please take her to be seen by a paediatrician or your doctor ASAP.
