She has had 2 urinary tract infections ( once when she was 3 months old and then once when she was 3 1/2 -- she is now 4 1/2 ) ... both of those times she had a fever and we took her to the ER and she was taken care of.
Every once in awhile she will complain about hurting or itching down there, but I assume it is from her not wiping right ( I have tried to teach her how) and it usually if fine in a day or two.
But now for the last few days she has been complaining about it itching and stuff more than usual and I checked and she is red.
I also know that she has been using a new strawberry bubble bath for the week ( her dad thinks that since it says its for kids it wont irritate her) .... I assume this is why she has been more irritated and she is no longer using a bubble bath ( we are starting showers now ) ..... I assume this is the cause and it will clear up.... but I was wondering if anyone thinks I should be more worried about this ( we recently lost our private insurance and we are unable to go to her regular peditrician - we have a family DR but he has said himself that he isnt comfortable with kids and especially something like this I dont feel comfortble taking her to him... I also dont think i should take her to the ER for redness and itchiness - but we have not found any other peditricians that take the new ( state) insurance)...
Is there any safe things I can do for her that I can buy at the store myself.... or is this something she NEEDS to go to the DR for
