Re: She says "it" hurts - what to do?

If you have her soak in a tub with vinegar for at least 20 minutes while she plays. Avoid all soaps for a while. If you wash her hair, drain the water first so she's not sitting in soapy water.

H even hates baby wipes and we have seventh gen so not sure what else would be easier in her. Let me know if anything you try works and I'll do the same

Re: She says "it" hurts - what to do?

My DD is prone to dry skin especially where there are folds of skin. She will sometimes complain of it hurting when she wipes too. I will usually have her show me. I will just look but she is the one doing all the touching. I give her the diaper creme on her finger and she puts it exactly where it hurts. For my DD it is usually concentrated to a specific spot which changes, and I can see from the visual look that it is just dry and irritated.

For us it happens when she is wiping, but not any other time (well sometimes when she is drying off with a towel after her bath.)

Re: She says "it" hurts - what to do?

My dd does this off and on. You can get a ph test from the drug store that can help you tell if it's yeast. We saw the doctor to and she told us that little girls get irritated a lot and no bubble baths and to use some neosporin for a few days if she seems red. (this was after determining that it was not yeast fyi.) they also did a dipstick urine and said she didn't have a UTI but a dipstick does not rule out a UTI so that was obnoxious, but she only ever complains of it for a few days then not for a while so I didn't want antibiotics anyway so I guess it didn't matter. I try to give her cranberry juice, cut down on bubble baths. If it is yeast more yogurt can help prevent it coming back.

Re: She says "it" hurts - what to do?

MY DD who is 3 years 4 months, just told me last week that her pee-pee hurts (and she also often calls her whole area down there her "bum". She also didn't want me to look, but I told her I couldn't help her if I couldn't see what was bothering her. She also didn't have any UTI symptoms. I thought maybe yeast or not wiping well (which I thought was a good possibility since I am often not with her when she goes since DS wasa born 4 mos ago). It turned out she had a little red raw spot and when she peed it irritated it. I put a call into the doc to see what she recommended. She said not to use a yeast cream unless I knew it was a yeast infection - that it can mess with the balance down there. She suggested using diaper creamas a barrier or a non-talc powder. I also showed DD again how to wipe front to back. She prefers to reach from behind to wipe, so I told her to take a second piece of TP and dab off the front. I told her it was very important to keep it dry down there and that if she doesn't get the wet pee off that's why she got a sore. I also showed her how to better wash down there at bath time and to dry off after. ANd I made her sleep without undies for a week. I would continue it, but all she sleeps in are undies, so she was naked for a week! lol! Hope your DD is feeling better soon!

personally, i would recommend a bath with a bit of tea tree oil. If its yeast, it will help.

I just wanted to add that even as an adult, I prefer sensitive wet wipes to plain toilet paper. Maybe that could help her stay clean and reduce irritation.

I also still use baby body wash for myself, because normal "adult" body wash irritates me.
