Resolved Question:

My 10 year old daughter has a red, itchy vagina, that she also says is sore. It seems to happen at night and has occured in the last 3 days. There is no vaginal discharge and she has no burning or difficulties when going to the toilet. Can I use hydrocortisone cream to relieve the itch until we can get to see a doctor?

Hello J C, Yes you can for a couple of days till consultation. Alternate it with clotridazole cream or lotion for possible fungal infection.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Do not neglect to see a specialist even if much relieved as hydrocortisone can suppress inflamation without curing the disease.

Please dry the outside skin well after bath, visit to toilet and use cotton undies.
