What causes vaginal itching in baby?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... I have a 9 month old infant granddaughter. She must be experiencing vaginal itching. She constantly moves in a way like she s trying to scratch. Almost like it s a humping motion. Could she be allergic to the diapers? She doesn t have a rash. She does drink milk too.

Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response
Hello,

The most common cause of vaginal itching apart from diaper rash in this age group would be a worm infestation.

I suggest that you give her oral Albendazole at the dose of 200 mg 1 dose today and another after 10 days.

This should settle the issue. If still she is having similar symptoms, I suggest you to consult her pediatrician regarding this.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sumanth Amperayani
