Swelling Between The Genitals And Groin Accompanied By Fever?
My daughter is 4 years old. Swollen genitals near the groin. But it’s not later that it’s swollen. Accompanied by a fever. Why is that? Yesterday I checked with the doctor instead there was no swelling. The doctor said nothing. But today is swollen again.
Thank you for the question.
Swelling in the genitals accompanied by fever in children may indicate the following conditions:
Vulvovaginitis (inflammation of the vaginal lips) Bartholinitis (inflammation of the Bartholin gland) Infection, for example due to folliculitis, abscesses, herpes, gonorrhea Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritative substances) Other factors, such as insect bites, post-injury, contact dermatitis, contact dermatitis allergies, benign or malignant tumors, urinary tract infections, lymphadenitis, inguinal hernias, etc. The condition of your child may or may not be dangerous, depending on the underlying cause. Often, if your child's condition is mild, early treatment from a doctor can overcome the complaint. Therefore, you should be patient to give your child the treatment according to what the doctor recommends. In addition, in order for the complaints to improve, you also need to:
Give the child paracetamol medication so that the fever decreases Give him lots to drink Ask him to avoid fondling urinate Warm compress Your child's genitals are swollen, or ask him to soak in warm water Make sure your child's genitals are always clean Avoid the child's genitals so as not to contact with any soap , intimate organ fragrance, rough clothing, or other substances that are prone to irritate the skin Ask the child not to put anything into his genitals Ensure the environment around the child is always safe, and protected from the risk of sexual abuse If within 1-3 days after undergoing treatment the doctor's condition your child still does not improve, immediately check it back to the doctor, pediatrician, or dermatologist to be treated further huh ..
I hope this helps.
