My 4 year old daughter is squirming and twitchy - she is complaining

Customer Question

My 4 year old daughter is squirming and twitchy - she is complaining her bottom is sore but she can't tell me if it hurts, stings or itches? I am thinking it could be thrush or worms?

Any Thoughts?

Jnavits12 :

Hi there this is Dr.Jody Navitsky and I can help you.

Jnavits12 :

I apologize that no one was on line to answer for you when you asked initially but if you are still interested we can work together.

Jnavits12 :

Let me know by replying and we can connect when you are ready. A few thoughts until then, squirming is most likely from itching/irritation vs pain. When they have pain or burning little girls will be more likely to cry than to writhe around. I would ask you exactly where she say it is bothering her, in her vaginal area, or on her bottom?

Jnavits12 :

Any redness, discharge, anything that you see on the outside? Any changes in the way she poops especially a history of hard stools?

Jnavits12 :

What about her urine? Spending a lot of time in the pool lately?

Jnavits12 :

I will be on the lookout for a reply thanks!
