Causes Of Blood Spots Appear On The Underwear Of 4-year-old Children?
Night. I want to ask my child aged 4, suddenly in my pants, my child has a brown blood spot and whitish why?
Hello, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Spots of blood and mucous like vaginal discharge that mothers complain can come from the urethra (end of the urinary tract), vagina (end of the reproductive tract) and anus (end of the digestive tract). In addition, it can also come from the surrounding area. A direct examination is needed to determine the origin of the blood and mucous spots.
In general, there are 2 possibilities, namely the process of infection or due to trauma (such as falls and scratching trauma). Below are some of the diseases that may be related, namely:
1. Uretritis or inflammation of the urethra that is usually caused by E. Coli bacterial infection. Namely, gastrointestinal bacteria, where bacteria reach the urethra due to misdirected genital organs.
2. Vaginal infections, such as vaginal candidiasis, bacterial vaginosis and vaginal trichomoniasis.
3. Bartolinitis or inflammation of the bartolin gland.
4. Infestation of worms in the anus.
5. Anal scratching wound.
6. And others.
Try to pay attention, what appears on the younger pubic organs. Are there any wounds or rashes. If there are wounds, the mother can gently clean. Furthermore, keep the cleanliness of the pubic organs adek with a wipe from front to back. Give a sister underwear that can absorb sweat and loose.
If there are festering or extensive wounds or if the mother is worried about not finding any abnormalities, bring her in consultation with a pediatrician. In order to do a direct examination to find the cause. Later treatment will be given is based on the cause of the disease.
Thus hopefully useful.
