Ok, my healthy 8 year old daughter itches her vaginal area almost constantly. This has been going on for almost 4-5 months now. I am worried, because she has seen our family doctor, plus another general practitioner, and both say there is nothing wrong.
We have even had a culture done to check for bacteria/fungus/urinary/yeast infection, and it came back negative.
My wife says she is NOT taking her to a doctor again, she thinks that they will think we are fussing over nothing.
I think the problem is real. My daughter itches constantly (even doing odd squirms in public when she is trying to not use her hand to scratch). It seem to just "bother" her most than anything. No pain.
Is this something a Gynocologist or Dermatoligist should look into?
There are no visible signs.
Is it a mental thing? hanks for the comments, but she has NO redness, and NO lesions.
She looks completey fine down there. The says the area of itch is in the actual vagina area (NOT the surrounding skin). There is also no redness there.
We are just at wits end, since the general practitioners find nothing wrong.
She is 8 and we make sure she bathes every other day with a non allergenic soap.
She has never had allergies, and the only thing (drug wise) that she is taking is Ketoconazole cream (prescription) for a nail/fungus issue on one of her toes.
Thanks for the direction advice
