Q.

Please advise-Itching like mad

Hi, My 13 month old little girl has been itching odd times since she has been born by her virgina, she ithces for a month then it stops then 3 months later it itches again. She scrathes really badly and it actually becomes raw and a bit raw..Please can you advise what i can do about this. I read up that i should bath her in organic rooibos tea and then rub the inflamed aread with Calendula cream, only started using the cream last night so hope it works.

Then another problem i have is she has an incredibe tooth for luxuries, she wants sweets, chips, chocs, drinks all the time. I know its bad, but i give it to her alot, wot could i do to get her off these luxuries.

Kind regards

This sounds like a candida infection or possibly pinworm infection. Give her Vermox Syrup 5ml once only. Also use Nystatin oral solution 1ml 4 times aday for 5 days and apply Nystatin cream twice a day for 5 days to her vagina
