My 5 year old daughter has had intense genital itching no rash or discharge last summer and starting again this spring. She has seen the doctor's many times. Tested for yeast and bacteria and all negative. No over the counter creams help nor has any prescribed medicine. She does not have pinworms nor does it appear to be psychological since it stopped mid October and started again in the spring. She has allergies and we have an appointment at the allergist in a week or so, but I am worried that will yield no results either. We have changed her underwear to plain cotten switched to phosphate free detergents, no bubblebaths and only "soap" she uses is Cetaphil. She is miserable and it is affecting her schoolwork and we are afraid the other kids will start teasing her. She has been to a Gynocologist who said contact dermititis, but the only thing that had changes is we moved further out to the country and the only thing causing the skin issues is her scratching it. Should we go to the dermatologist too? Any suggestions on what could cause this would be greatly appreciated.
