Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The clitoris is a part of the sexual organs in women located in the upper part of the vagina. In men, the equivalent of the clitoris is the head of the penis, because both organs have many nerve endings and are sensitive areas.
Swelling in this section can occur due to various causes, including:
Insect bites or mites Chemical irritation, such as soap Cysts or fluid-filled sacs Hormone disorders Congenital abnormalities Allergic reactions Bacterial, fungal infections Certain skin disorders
Our advice, you should check your child at a pediatrician first to see firsthand about his complaints. Your doctor will need information about your child's habits, how he maintains his hygiene, where he is playing, and so on, as well as conducting a brief physical examination by looking directly to be able to find out the tendency of your child's condition. Handling later will depend on the results of this examination.
In the meantime, you can provide over-the-counter medicines for over-the-counter children by reading the rules of use listed because they can also have mild pain relief. But besides these hot medications, don't try to give any oral medication or topical medication because your child's condition is still unclear and a child needs a different dose from an adult. In addition, warm compresses to the swollen part, and keep your child's genitals clean by washing from front to back and not vice versa. So, hopefully answering your question.
