Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry your daughter has vaginal discomfort. Since she is not sexually active, and she has no vaginal discharge, from your description, it is most likely a yeast infection of the skin. There are several things you can do for her. Apply Monistat cream to the labia and surrounding skin for 3 days. If it is a yeast infection, that should resolve it. Also, she will need to wear all cotton underwear, nothing containing polyester or nylon and loose fitting clothing. If not resolved in 3 days, then a visit to her LMD is in order.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
