Although 75% of women may experience vaginal yeast infection during some stage of their lives, the occurrences of vaginal yeast infections in children are also not uncommon. The main symptoms of this infection are pain, redness, itching and a thick white vaginal discharge but in young children (including toddlers) the symptoms may be little different – very young girls do not get a vaginal discharge and may not have an odour.
Vaginal infections in small children can be prevented to a large extent by keeping their vaginal area clean and dry. Treatment for vaginal yeast infections in children is generally safe and effective.
Vaginal yeast infection in children can be influenced by a number of factors such as the child’s health, hygiene habits, clothing, medication and hormones. A close supervision of these can help prevent or cure vaginitis considerably.
