So my daughter's dad and I have been split up since she was 3 months old. He comes to visit once a week without fail. She is now 3.5. Last month she got a red swollen clitoris and surrounding tissue and I assumed it was from learning to wipe her own bottom. Then 2 weeks later it happened again. Flaming red, raw, swollen. When I asked why she had a sore bottom she said "Daddy pinches my bottom when he wipes it." She says he doesn't do it any other time then when she's going potty. She says no one else hurts her bottom. Today after my ex left I put her in the bath and she started complaining and I looked and its red and raw again! When I asked what happened she said "Daddy wiped my bottom with his pointer finger and pinched my bottom!" Pointer being index finger. I should add that I have sole custody and he visits at my house. Is this chronic yeast infection and coincidence?? I am taking her to her pedi tomorrow to have her look at it. Help?
When we arrived at the doctors we went through the checkup like usual temp, bp, check for sore throat. She has ZERO other symptoms. When the doc asked if her bottom hurt my daughter blatantly tells her "Yeah cuz daddy pinched my bottom!" The doc called to set up an appointment with family services to have her interviewed but says she suspects it's just vaginitis which is very common at this age. She said the detail with which dd explains it is concerning though. Still 50/50 chance I guess :-(
