Is it possible that she could have a yeast infection? adult content

My 4 year old daughter has been complaining of her privates hurting the past couple of days. I looked down there earlier and it is pretty red and she complained of the pain. I'm just wondering if it is possible that she has a yeast infection?

  • I just realized that she does it when she goes to the bathroom and she's been urinating a lot. Maybe a UTI?

  • I would say a UTI more then a yeast infection but she is complaining of pain. I am assuming you wash her but might not be there for every bathroom trip.

  • Could be a yeast infection, UTI or bladder infection. TAKE HER TO THE DOCTOR.

  • Giving a warm bath without any soap present in the water daily for the next couple of days will help keep it clean and reduce irriation. It can be caused from not wiping properly, too.

  • it could be either or, sometimes it can be the soap you use. Once you take her to the hospital and find out the problem consider getting a milder soap.
