My 3-year-old daughter gets a bit smelly and has redness in

My 3-year-old daughter gets a bit smelly and has redness in her nether regions fairly often. Should I be concerned? What can I do to help? We still have diaper cream that we use on her baby brother but her rashes tend to be more towards the front. Any advice?JA: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?Customer: Not me, my daughter. Not sure what makes it worse. One theory I have is that it might be related to her not wiping well enough. She's fully potty trained and doesn't wet her pull-up at night but she's not the best at wiping. What can I do to help with her discomfort and keep this from happening?JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Nothing in her medical history, no

My sister and her son (21 years old) both have developed

My sister and her son (21 years old) both have developed reoccurring fungal infections over the past six months (sister) and three months (son). My sister's rashes are on her C-section line and between her legs. Her son's rash is on his private parts. Do you think it is strange that this is happening, and can you think of anything that could cause it such as a cat or cat litter? It just seems baffling to me that both of them have a fungal problem at the same time. Could it be from detergent? Thanks so much.

About a month ago I contracted hsv2, symptoms came on real

Hello Dr. So about a month ago I contracted hsv2, symptoms came on real after the sexual encounter which a condom was used we had vaginal intercourse also I performed oral on him with the condom on and when he finished was the only time it wasnt so I started on Valtrex well a wk after..my throat and mouth started acting up enlarged tonsils, white patches on tonsils I've always had a bit of candida on my tongue so I went to the walk in had a rapid mono and strep that came back negative so they put me on amoxicillian they did a throat culture that came back in 2 days stating that it was a bacterial infection but not caused by the same as strep..2 days since that visit the patches on tonsils but they been enlarged since. My anxiety has been through the roof and I can't shake this feeling of uneasiness. Since than its one day I'll feel fine next something else. I'm going to my primary doc Tom I just wanted your perspective should I be worrying myself? I was screened for other stds the only one which I wasn't was hiv but I routinely do that every 3 months.
