I think my two year old has a minor vaginal yeast infection...

  • It has been a week of discomfort/pain.
  • No rash.
  • Refusing baths.
  • Hates going without a diaper because of this "pain."
  • I know something is bothering her down there.


Treatment so far.  

  • probiotics
  • eating low sugar
  • 1/2 c apple cider vinegar in bath 
  • We are considering treating her with monistat 3 topically BUT we want be sure it's in fact fungal.


How do I test her?

I don't think you can test her on your own.  You should probably bring her to a doctor to test her.
