Curious question.... Need advice, opinions, medical resources.....

I have a 6 year old daughter with a health/medical issue that seems uncommon, peculiar, and stressful for my daughter.
About a year ago she started 'dripping'. We took her to her dr. (Our dr). She did an exam and didn't seem concerned. A few months later it was still an issue so we took her to another dr. At the same clinic. This dr. Smelled the pad she (my daughter) was wearing and confirmed it wasn't pee, swabbed her and it came back fine, so she said maybe stress. So here we are a few months later with the same issue popping up.
Keirra does get very stressed out, very easily. She has an intense personality, and her attitude varies/changes often and quickly.
My my view point: My 6 year old shouldn't have to change her panties every 15 minutes because of leakage. My 6 year old shouldn't need to wear pads. My 6 year old shouldn't be crying and upset, worried about " if it happens when she's at school"!
Before I take her back to her dr. Or to a different dr. I wanted to see if there is anyone who knows of this issue.... If there's anyone who has had a daughter experience this...... I'm just unsure of how to handle it.

I'm sorry. I have no advice for you. I have never heard of such a thing. The only suggestion I have is to maybe google it? Sometimes, what you find may be really scary and might not give correct information. But you also might stumble upon something that just might help you find some answers. Good Luck!

My daughter had kidney reflux which occasionally caused a muscle spasm which might lead to voiding ( completely emptying her bladder) spontaneously. This is clearly not what your little one is experiencing, but she saw a peds urologist who wAs able to find a solution.

Pediatric urologist at a teaching hospital now for a second opinion. Get her whatever kind of DISCREET pads she is comfortable wearing. If she drips she NEEDS them!!! What's wrong with you? This is not normal and whatever the reason, it needs to be figured out! Use pantie liners, underroos, what ever it takes so school isn't traumatic. Get her help ASAP!

Excuse you?!
She is wearing pads, and we have her using a wipe now and then to avoid infection from the moisture! This issue comes and goes, I've been documenting when and her mood so that when I do proceed with getting her to a specialist, I have something to tell them! Pretty sure you should ask before the rude, "what's wrong with you?"! She's 6, vaginal exams aren't exactly easy at her age so I'm making sure I do my research first and know what I feel is the right thing to do! She has no pain or other symptoms so taking time to handle it correctly is the best approach! Thanks for your input!

Has she been examined for a weak bladder or vaginal muscles? Maybe they are not as right for some reason. Is this a daily thing? Does it hurt? When did the leaking start, worsen, appear?

In the two spots she's had, each with a different dr, they weren't checking for much as far as something specific. In the second appt. she ruled out urine, and there was no yeast or bacterial infection! There is no pain at all. This started maybe a year ago. She doesn't always tell is about it so I don't know how often, but I told her thy she needs to tell us from now on. Also. I noticed that it's happening more when she's stressed out or more emotional then usual. I agree that a specialist is the next step. I will be making calls next week.
