  • Um... Does she have a UTI? Otherwise I would worry about injury or abuse...

  • well, the clitoris isn't a gland....it's like a woman penis actually. but anyway, it could be sore because her pants or panties were rubbing it all day and now it's sore. i would just make sure that her panties are on right and maybe have her wear dresses and tights for a few days and see if that helps.

  • I'd bring her to a Dr. to rule out what Sabrina mentioned above.

  • Princess, the Clitoral Glan is the external portion of the Clitoris which is covered by the hood... Which is why I'm thinking UTI.

  • a UTI involves the bladder's outlet, not the clitoris, which has nothing to do with the urethra. The urethra is the opening through which urine flows. The clitoris won't be involved.

  • Take her to the doctor instead of asking a bunch of women who obviously aren't doctors! Jaysus!

  • You need to take her to the doctor, and not try to guess, or diagnose her on the internet. Some things just need medical intervention.
