The commonest cause of vaginal discharge in children is vaginitis due to poor hygiene. mums should ensure our girls change their panties daily, buy cotton panties that can breathe and more importantly teach girls how to wipe/clean up after using the toilet. it should be front to back and preferably if at home use water as some kids can react to toilet roll and afterwards frequent hand washing. most importantly, be sure there is no sexual abuse ongoing'.

the child needs to see a doctor
