hello there; yes, esp. when teeth are coming out;

my kids doctor says it can happen for kids to have yeast infection due to their sh... (sorry I don't know the word in english), the treatment is local (appropriate cream); hope it helps

Hurting when urinating sounds like a bladder infection to me which certainly could be followed by a yeast infection but consider a UTI first.

What's in the cream you use? Corn starch will cause a yeast infection....and is common in powders and creams for 'down there'. Also...high sugar intake. Sugar is in almost everything now.

Yes kids can get them, she needs to be seen by a doctor and be treated.

Antibiotics is the main cause.

Yes - DD got a yeast infection a few months ago.  You need to take her to a doctor because they will need to prescribe something.  If it hurst when she goes to the bathroom, she may also have a UTI which will require antibiotics.  Otherwise, for the yeast infection they'll give her a prescription cream.  It is actually quite common so I would let her air out down there once a day because the diaper can actually cause it and make it worse.

my daughter would get them sometimes when on anitbotics, i always made sure she ate yogart when on them after she got one. She had one this summer, when she was at her dads for the weekend, she was in a wet bathing suit pretty much the whole weekend, i called the pharmacy, at her age i was able to buy over the counter cream and have her eat yogart and it cleared up, but when they are that young you will need to get sometihng from her doctor, and have them test her pee as well for a UTI, i have had one uti in my life due to meds i was on, and its the most painful thing ever.

She's not saying that she's sick though, so why would she be on antibiotics?

She does state she's using creams, and probably powder....alot of moms do.

A&D works wonders, nystatin(Rx), Monistat (OTC), Magic Butt Cream (Rx, mixed at pharmacy - combination of zinc oxide, nystatin, and something else magical ;) ), lay off sugar - yeast thrives on it - so any juice, sugared yogurt or other sugary things (fresh fruit or jarred depending on age); limit diaper time, change diapers frequently and immediately after wet or dirty diaper. Lay off powder. No bubble baths.  If it's the big D, try some mylanta - a super thin layer - it soothes the acid and burning associated with yeast infection and diarrhea. You can also use cotton squares dipped in warm water, instead of wipes, to soothe her and make the pain less until the situation clears.
