Although Yvette could express herself now but still, she has limited vocabulary when come to describe her fear, her feeling.
This morning, in the middle of the night, around 2 am, she woke up and cried (for about 1/2 hr to 45 mins) and told us her private area is painful. In fact, this was not the first time we experienced this.
It happened a few days ago and it was around 5 am in the morning. She woke up and cried for the same issue.
We spotted some nappy rash around her private part area. And the nappy rash was indeed caused by wearing diaper during the long journey ride to Malaysia. We have brought her to see a doctor and was given Anti-bacterial, Fungicidal, Virucidal wash to clean the affected area and as well as Antibiotic cream to apply on the affected area.
We wrestled for 45 mins and I finally soothed to sleep. On closer look, there was a little scar around her private area. I think it was there as a result of Yvette kept scratching herself.
We were bewildered. Why there is a need to scratch that area when she was in pain? Is she feeling itchy rather than painful? Anyone out there can advise me?
The very morning, I asked her again about the incident, she replied painful. Having Yvette with limited vocabulary, I really can’t figure out what exactly her problem is. I examined her private area after bathing her. The redness is gone. And where is the pain all about? Shall I bring her to seek second opinion?
At the same time, I spotted some patches on the leg too. One of them was started off with a little scar. And it all ended up in this stage because Yvette scratched that area. This left me wondering how Yvette can cope if she is having Chicken Pox?
I also realised her skin is really sensitive nowadays. Beside those red patches, there are some white patches behind her (both) upper tight. When we were at the doctor visit, we also asked doctor about this problem too.
Dr. Teo told us these are fungal and will go away after a certain period of time.
Shall I bring Yvette to see skin specialist for a peace of mind?
