So, my DD will be 5 in a month and has, sadly, had issues with a sensitive vagina. This is not surprising ot me as I have had issues myself. So, when she was 3 she had a burning sensation, tried a thousand different soaps, soaks, creams, and finally now have a nice soap that does the trick (poofy organics unscented baby mild for anyone interested). Now, she has developed a kinda stong, unpleasant odor. She showers everyday or every other day, sometimes take baths, she wears high cut undies to get some air circulating, she does wear tights and I know that is not the best, but she takes them off after preschool. She pats herself dry after she pees and still asks us to wipe after she poops because she doesnt want to get "dirty." (We told her she has to start doing it herslef when she is 5, though, and she is fine with that). So, it is not a cleanliness issue.
Now, I dont know what to do. She was sitting on the floor in front of my DS who is 3. They both had their legs crossed and were playing a game and my son got very upset and said DDs dress smelled bad and she had to take it off. It wasnt her dress, sadly. I dont want her to be embarrassed about this and we have not brought it up to her, except that she needs to be sure she changes her undies frequently and washes well in the shower - she does both all the time.
Any thoughts on how to help with this. I have never really had, that I can remember, an odor issue and dont really know if there are any remedies. I just dont wnt her to go to kindergarten and have someone notice or make her fell badly. Help!!
