My 4 year old daughter has been having problems in her private area for about a year now. It comes and goes, depending on the treatments we have tried. Lately it has been bad for her. We've seen 4 different doctors, all of them have taken swabs and urine samples with no positive results for anything. We've done a stool sample for yeast (which has been an issue before) and it came back negative as well. A urologist said it's vaginitis. We air dry (sometimes using a blow dryer after showers to help dry area, no underwear at bedtime, all natural/allergy friendly wipes instead of toilet paper. We have switched all of our soaps, shampoos, etc to allergy friendly products. She does have food allergies, so her diet is limited to a gluten/dairy/soy free diet. We juice on a daily basis, 70% veggies & 30% Fruit...just recently taking citrus out of her diet (it's been about 2 weeks now) And no change. We've taken baking soda baths, apple cider vinegar baths, epsom salt baths, with no luck! She is now taking showers because it became unbearable for her to sit in water. The doctors won't prescribe her anything since nothing is coming back from the tests. Her underwear isn't tight, I bought them bigger purposely for this reason. I currently use a yeast & anti itch cream twice a day externally. This only seems to help a little. She complains of it itching, burning when peeing and just hurting in general at random times of the day. I've heard of coconut oil helping, but am scared to use it internally. We have a doctor appointment on Thursday, but knowing my doctor she will tell me not to use it as she doesn't really approve of our natural lifestyle and unfortunately she is the only one in our area that doesn't require vaccinations to be a patient, so we don't have a lot to choose from. I'm feeling lost and helpless and just want some relief for my baby girl!
I wonder about reducing sugars in her diet? Hoping she outgrows it.
