    Brought my girl for 6 mths checkup. pediatrician said i didn't clean her vagina properly so her vagina hole is closing up, i.e. sticked together.

    Told me to stretch it and clean with damp cotton wool then apply nappy rash cream.

    But my girl refused to let me clean cos it's painful i think.

    Any mummies has such experience & advice?

    the PD even stretch for me to see...
    can see the hole after he stretch it opened.

    he said my girl's condition not serious.
    If not, there will be a special cream to apply.

    try to clean as 'much' as possible to prevent further 'closing' else, as yr PD said if its serious, might need the special cream and by then, guess it will be more painful den now ba... really ouch..

    Must keep it clean. I know of a girl who end up going for surgery to open it.

    Must get my hb to hold on to her while i clean.

    my niece had surgery as well but it was closed all along (when borned). After surgery, everytime has to clean, stretch and apply cream - very very painful and she will scream every time. So in a way, it is good that you realise early

    my mum did warn me before coz she heard of cases where they go for surgeries.. so when she came over, she'll regularly check coz i used to put desitin cream on my ger but now i no longer do that.. i have to hold my ger while my mum will soak cotton wool or sometimes cotton bud with warm water and clean up the area... i dun really dare to do it coz i'm afraid of hurting her..

    Actually, I only clean on the outside... do we have to open up the area to clean inside? Will we hurt the baby??:shyxxx:

    now I just check to see if there's residue of cream inside.. But I only apply baby balm on her buttocks now...

    for mi i didnt really "pull it apart" i jus open it up slightly then i make the cotton wool ball real wet the i clean.
    another way i clean before shower without having to "open" up here area is her back towards mi (with mi sitting down) the carry her in a position like squarting then i clean her...
    as i put destin for her, the v area always got white white destin i also make sure evertime i change her i'll clean it away.

    awwww.. i was so surprise as i nv heard of this before.. but really must clean up well.. my girl will always gets the mustela cream in her private parts too.. must be careful.. i've got 2 girls! ^^

    like my younger girl.. so had these white translucent discharge from her body too.. then the doc n nurse says it's just bacteria in their body when they r inside us.. n i always clean it.. so it's ok.. but my sis-in-law nv open up n clean so she don even know.. until it's too much n can c from outside then she realise.. could it be that thing that close up the private part?
