My 13 year old daughter had a biopsy of her genital last week friday and the diagnosis came back - inflammation. Her gynie has prescribed dovate cream twice a day for 2 weeks.
I cannot believe that this is so simple, she has suffered from this her whole life, including a white, thick discharge, even as a baby, I have tried everything, for a two week period at a time, I have taken the following away from her: sugar, diary products, I have tried the yoghurt story, she has a had a consious sedation where her gp checked if she hadn't stuck anything inside her when she a toddler. I've taken her to two dermatologist's and now finally a gynie. Is there anything else we should be doing.

Hallo justjenny
No I think you should just avoid any harsh soaps, let her bath with Elizabeth Anne baby shampoo or UEA cream as a soap. Let her only wear cotton panties and she must please not spray any deodorants or feminine products there. Avoid bubble bath etc in her bathwater too. Buy only white soft toilet paper for her to use. Ask the gyne if it will be useful for her to put on a dab of esterogen vaginal cream two or three times a week as preventative measure after she completed the Dovate?
