DD has painful ladyparts - can I put anything on it?

DD has spent a sweltering day in perhaps not the best underwear (front wedgie), been in a sandpit and then worn a leotard to ballet.

Her, ahem, front bottom (don't flame me for being delicate) is painful. She says inside, but I think must be combo of heat and irritation.

Have sat her in a cool bath.

Anything else to be done?

Any cream etc? She can't get a yeast infection can she?

Doh, she's 3.10 by the way

You could try sudocrem, other than that I think it should clear up once she is all cleaned up and no longer irratating it.

Also, you might want to let her run around for a bit with nothing on rather than drying with a towel after her bath - that should help!

Poor love sad.

blush irritating - sorry, my spelling is crap today!

DD (8) had a little trouble recently. I got some Vagisil wet wipes (chamomile and something) to soothe it and clean it and a Mr Bump bruise pack just to make her feel a bit cooler. I also bought some cystitis drink, in case that was causing a problem but by next day she was fine, so it wasn't necessary.

If shes still sore tomorrow I'd be tempted to go see a doc, but then I'm a bit of a worry wart about this kind of thing,

my two girls still get sore bits even at 6 and 3 when they've not wiped properly etc. I just use a bit on Metanium, left over from when DD2 was younger, and it clears up by the morning.

I had to use Sudacreme on my DD last night, it seems to have helped.

Thanks ladies, we fly on hols tomorrow so was a bit worried!

My dd (2.3) is complaining her 'bits are sore' and they do look very red - she waits til she's got a nappy on at sleep time to poo and it spreads everywhere. I don't know how much delving to do to get the bits out, she hates having it cleaned, so I put sudocreme on but I'm worried leaving poo in that area will do more harm. No one tells you how to clean girly bits!

My daughter has this a lot. She suffers from a condition called Vulvovaginitus. She get incredibly sore and itchty and it hurts when she wees.
Went to the docs so many times before being refered to a consultant who diagnosed it straight away. He said GPs just don't have a great understanding of it and give canestan which actually makes the soreness worse. He prescribed an oestrogen cream which did the trick. Oh and down below was very smelly too.
If these ring alarm bells I would see a your GP and mention this as the consultant said 1 in 3 girls before puberty age suffer with this.

green vaseline (the one with aloe vera in) is great

this was the only thing that didnt irritate becase its so mild and its very soothing
id give it a try its only about a quid from boots

This happened to my dd on holiday last year. I washed her little botty in the bidet, dried it thoroughly and covered it in Sudocrem. Twas fine the next day.

I'd recommend Sudocrem all the time. My DD is 10 now and has intermittently suffered from sore botty. Often there's been no apparent reason for it but it's usually when she's been on a school/brownie trip and not showered every day.

A nice cool bath, sudocrem overnight, and Bob's your uncle. It's fab stuff!
