You have every reason to be concerned about your granddaughter's problem. In spite of the very obvious concerns you have with her mother's mental illness and the arrival of a step father on the scene, this is not likely to be due to sexual abuse and nor is this due to a urinary infection. Much more likely is that this is due to a bad case of candida infection, possibly following on antibiotic treatment which your granddaughter may have had recently. Give her Nystatin oral solution by mouth for 5 days and apply Nystatin cream to her vagina 3 times a day. Also give her a probiotic such a Probiflora for Children once daily for 10 days [speak to your pharmacist about all these medicines]Please let me know if this problem clears up as I am concerned about this whole situation.
