Genital problems

My daughter is 7 and has Autism and she is high functioning. She has been grabbing herself between her legs and smelling it and then in the bath she was doing that and i asked her if it hurts and she said yes. I don't see any discharge or blood but she can't tell me enough of what is going on. Lately she has been obsessed with lines on her if she leans on a desk and gets a line or lines that are on her socks. So i am not sure if this keeps up if there is a special dr. for this?

Re: Genital problems

It maybe she has a bladder infection? I would have her doc check her urine to be sure. Is she having to pee more often then normal? Thats a sign

Re: Genital problems

It's hard to say.... some little kids are just curious as to "what's down there anyways.." and others are having problems. I would more likely go with a UTI before a full out bladder infection because UTI's also have a distinct smell. I agree with the above person to take her to a doctor in case something is really wrong.

Can you tell me more about these "lines"? Is she trying to get them?

Re: Genital problems

Sorry i havent responded until now i have been so busy. The lines is just an obsession i talked her her OT therapist and it will pass in time. The touching herself and smelling it was a phase she isnt doing that now i am more worried about her being constipated as i posted on my other thread

Re: Genital problems

Try fruit juices and yogurt. That should help with inducing a bowel movement.
good luck

Re: Genital problems

Thats all she drinks is juice she wont eat yogurt anymore she wont eat anything today of course cause she is constipated. I prob will have to have her checked by a specialist and of course it is a holiday weekend.

Re: Genital problems

Don't force it, because it can make it worse. Sometimes stress can make things worse. I do get her not wanting to eat, that will happen... what you need to do is help "stimulate" a movement. Sometimes patting her tummy or rubbing her tummy can help. See if that helps.

Re: Genital problems

try rubbing her belly while you hold her, that should at least move the gas around
