I had my 7 year old daughter at the doctor
this week because she was SCREAMING when she pee'd.
I thought UTI but when they checked her pee they said no
and said prob a yeast infection. She has no discharge that I can see.
They gave me cream to put in her and sent me on my way. Well this morning she pee'd and I was in tears myself. She just SCREAMED and was jumping off
the toilet. When I go to put the med on her I notice that a little
part of her skin ( not alot ) was pulled off and hanging. I call the doctor and she says oh yes a yeast infection will cause this to happen. I myself have never heard of that and was wondering if someone here has. I was not happy that the doctor gave me a note on friday and said she could go back to school. This child is screaming bloody murder when she pee's!! I can't send her to school like that! Today she only pee'd twice because she is now
holding it because it hurts so much.
The only thing I see that resembles a yeast infection is just a few tiny
white bumps. She is also not saying she is itchy, just the painful peeing.
Thanks for any advice!
i had the exact same thing happen to me when i was her age. there was no itching, just this intense pain and burning after i would pee. my mom would lay cold, wet washcloths on my privates just so i could get sleep. it was awful! i really feel for her.
I would also get a second opinon. And it might help her alot if you put vaseline on the open sore part to stop the stinging when she pees. My son (he is 3) had a similar thing happen and he would scream and cry every time he peed and he was stopping himself and not finishing. I took him to the doctors and because he tends to be "handleing" himself all the time he tore some of the skin and left and open sore...so the doctor suggested vaseline and it healed right up.
