[IPp] Irritated bottom

Hi Sybil,
   Are you saying that her rash is on her bottom or on the vaginal area?
If it is the vaginal area, by all means, do as Jana said.  Little girls can
get yeast infections too.  My sisters daughter had one when she was 6.  Many
times it's from not wiping properly after having a bowel movement (as in my
nieces case).  If she wipes forward instead of to the side or back, a small
amount of stool can get into the vagina, which will then cause an infection.
Little girls have to go by the same rules as women.  Another thing that may
help is encouraging her to use a baby wipe after voiding.  They will clean
the area much better.  Just tell her to throw it in the waste basket instead
of the toilet.  Even the flushable ones will eventually clog up a sewer line
if used continually (found that one out the hard way).
   Do you discourage her from drinking an hour before going to bed.  That
may help the nighttime wetness.
