Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I was waiting for additional information.

I would provide you an answer.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, her symptoms sound like vulvovaginitis.

Skin irritation around the vulva and vagina that is common in young children.

This irritation can be caused by the use of products that are too strong for the delicate vulvar skin, clothing that rubs, dampness, fungal infection, eczema.

If she has frequent urination, burning during urination, itching on the vulval area then she needs to see a doctor for a clinical exam and Urinary tract infection should be ruled out.

Blood sugar levels, urinalysis can be advised.

Wear only plain white, cotton underpants. Wash them with a tiny amount of unscented detergent and rinse twice to remove any remaining irritants from the detergent. Avoid fabric softeners or any extra cleaning or "freshening" products on underwear and swimsuits.

Avoid tights, one-piece leotards, tight jeans, or leggings. Choose skirts and looser fitting pants.

Don't use bubble bath or perfumed soap.

Use Abzorb powder if she has excessive moisture and itching.

Hydrate her with plenty of fluids.

Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

Waiting for your response.

Thanks.
