I just took my dd to a new pediatrician and thought to ask him to look at my daughter's vaginal area, because she has always had some little white specked discharge on the inside labial lips. I wondered whether the discharge was normal. (The last ped talked so much I always forgot to ask her, and she never looked). The new ped said she had vaginal adhesions and recommended that we do nothing unless they increased enough to cover the urethra. At that point he'd prescribe an estrogen cream. Has anyone had any experience with this? Is there something I can do to keep them from increasing?

Sarah,

This sounds very much like "Lichen Sclerosis(sus)" - it is a condition where the labia can fuse together along with white patches and lots of itching/burning and most likely surface cuts from scratching - the skin thins out so it makes it very vulnerable to tearing. I have suffered with this for about 5 yrs now and have just recently been diagnosed. I was on steroid cream, estrogen and then discovered some more natural remedies which really worked wonders. I am on a mailing list and there is a wealth of information along with quite a few moms on the list whose little girls(under 3) are dealing with this disease. Please check out the following website:

And the group i belong to is:

Very few doctors know about this disease leaving children and many women(and some men) to be misdiagnosed. Your dd may not have this, but it would be wise to read about it and learn as much as you can - even getting a second opinion.
