What could be the reason for itching sensation in the groin area? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi, I am Dr. XXXXXXX
Please proceed with your query
Please proceed with your query
i have query regarding my 18 month old daughter
Proceed with the question.
i have noticed for few days now that she is scratching her privates
we did check the area but we dint find any kind of discharge or reddening
and she does not have problem while urinating also
but she will scartch it or use objects to move aroud the area
please could you suggest what can be wrong
since when is she having this symptom?
from a week now
when she is playing she forgets
when she is sitting idle she will do it
Without associated complaints it is difficult to presume what could be causing this problem if at all it is indeed a problem.
If you are using diapers, I would suggest you to try not using it
or changing to a different size or brand
no..we are not using diapers
if you don't use diaper, check if you are using any other cosmetic such as powder.
she will usually wear her pants and if she wets it i will immediately change it
does the itching occur if soap is applied near the area
Sometimes wrong cleaning procedure while cleaning her after stools may be the cause.
Make those changes and observe.
If symptoms persist or if you notice rashes
such as..how can we clean her
after passing stools
You need to clean her away from the genital regions.
ok..and does soap also cause itching
Some mothers ignore this and clean towards genital area thereby introducing infection into the urinary cavity.
Soap may or may not be the cause.
but is soap safe to use to clean the around the area
Right now when there are no objective signs such as rashes it is extremely difficult to confirm the cause as infection or allergy.
Use a mild soap only. You can use those made for children only.
Check for irritation whenever you use a new product.
we were using XXXXXXX baby soap
but some time back she developed itching near neck area
so doctor changed the soap to neoscab
It is too early to presume allergy causes based on this symptoms alone. At least without examination I would not be able to confirm the relation to soap.
I would just suggest you to use simple plain water to clean the area for next two days
sure..will do that
if the symptoms stops, then perhaps its from the soap.
Do you have any more questions?
no doctor..thank you for your time
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
