  • I'l state the obvious-
    if you have never had a yeast infection- and cannot go to the doctor- how do you know the child has a yeast infection?

  • It would be very odd for a 2 year old to have a yeast infection,, I would suggest you take her to the doctor, and check into medi-caid, how do you get her shots? Wellness check-ups?

  • its not that i dont want to take her to a doctor i was just trying to see if maybe there was something that i could do for her on my own without having to rack up even more in bills i know theres a cream you use as an adult but i was curious as to weather or not it would be fine for her age.

  • NEVER, EVER use an adult remedy on a child... especially one so young WITH OUT a physicians approval.
    Suck it up and take the kid to her doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment! Unless you are an MD you are not qualified to diagnose a small child's yeast infection, especially if you've never had one!!!

  • It has been hot so she could be chaffed, she could have a UTI,, yeast infections are inside the vagina, and although putting a cream on the outside would alleviate some symptoms, you need to take this kid to the doctor, you understand she might have been abused or something right? Crafty is right, never medicate a kid with a treatment,, esp if you are not sure.
