The two year old among us was crying with peeing just weeks ago. She was hesitant to let me check her, but said that it burned when she peed. I FINALLY got in there for a closer look and found it was bright red, pretty hidden in the folds so that it wasn't visible unless I pulled them apart, which upset her of course. It was so red I thought it was frank blood, but there was nothing on the tissues. Anything that red must be SOOOO painful!
I thought adhesions at first, because I'd never heard of this redness. My sister with 4 daughters said that all of hers have had this at some point or another. She links it with changes in diet, and I think that's what happend with us. We had just started drinking juice and she went crazy with it. So I've since explained to she that too juices hurt her yoni, and that water doesn't. We're water people now. I think the juices caused some chemical change in the urine, which made it more irritating.
We don't use soap, either. We hardly ever bath, and when we do we usually don't use shampoo. So it's not necessarily a soap issue, but it could be for some I suppose.
Also, when we get off the potty I say, "Tree pose!" and she complies and we get a really good wipe. Yoga rocks!
Oh, and I put petroleum jelly on it for a couple of days, too, to keep the urine off it so that she could pee better. PJ is the only thing that I've found will NEVER sting, no matter what. Other more natural stuff usually ends up stinging and I won't try them anymore.
Hope this helps you.
