Green Mucus Comes Out And Feels Itchy In A 3-year-old Child’s Vagina?
Hello, the doctor wants to ask my child more than 3 years old, but to his shame, it smells so bad, itching and redness appear green mucus
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition that your child experiences can be caused by various diseases, which can vary depending on the sex. Among the possibilities are:
Penile head infection or balanitis
Urinary tract infection
Fungal infections, both on the skin or on the vagina
Pus buildup or abscess
And other possibilities also depend on the clinical condition. We recommend that you take your child to a dermatologist and a genital examiner for examination including a history, physical examination and possibly support by taking a fluid sample. This examination is important because in terms of disease information, many still need to be completed as to what sex, how long this has happened, has it happened before, are there family members with similar complaints, what are the habits and so on to narrow down the possibility. Only then can you determine the most appropriate treatment, which is likely in the case of your child will need antibiotics.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, make sure your child's genitals are always clean, routinely change his underwear, avoid him from playing in a dirty place, make sure his nails are short and his hands clean, and do not give medicine without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
