My 9yr old daughter has been complaining about an itchy

Customer Question
My 9yr old daughter...

My 9yr old daughter has been complaining about an itchy bottom. I’ve looked for worms but can not see any signs of them. She’s developing and whilst checking out I can see Hair growing but she wakes up crying about it and says it’s inside her bottom. I don’t know if that means actually inside or not. She has a couple of spots on her bottom but nothing that looks like it would cause this upset.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

On and off for a few months. At first putting cream there helped but that doesn’t seem to be helping any more

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in the child's medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, she’s had worms quite a lot when she was younger but not for a while

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
