My daughter is 25months and has a green vaginal discharge. I noticed it about a week ago when there was a green streak in her otherwise dry/clean diaper. At that time she had two bleeding sores near her clitoris which healed practically overnight after cleaning the area with witch-hazel pads and applying lanolin.
Yesterday I noticed the green again when I changed her diaper. This time she has no external sores or redness just a green ooze coming from her vagina. I'm assuming it's not from her urethra because she doesn't say anything hurts when she pees (and I've asked).
She stopped using diapers last December and has been using the potty really well (only wet in her undies occasionally). However, she found a new favorite place to put her hands and has had a lot of redness because she fondles her genitals while going to sleep (doesn't do it any other time). I have done what I could to keep her hands clean but the redness persists (she's kind of rough with herself). Not to mention her nose is always runny because of allergies so I'm sure her hands go from mouth to genitals and back quite a bit.
She started wetting and messing her undies in May when we began the adoption process with our son who is 22months and in diapers. We expected this and since she asked to wear diapers we let her. Once she started wearing a diaper at night again the fondling stopped and she hasn't had any redness until last week when I noticed the oozing and sores (which must have happened quickly because I change her diaper twice a day...she still takes it off by herself to use the potty...she won't poo in her diaper).
Anyway, I'm wondering what I can do about it. It doesn't appear to be bothering her but it's also not normal. I'm not opposed to doing nothing and giving it some time but if there's something noninvasive I can do to encourage the process along that'd be great too
Thanks for any advice!
