My daughter just go over hers. There's a new publication out about using Baking Soda now instead of vinegar because the vinegar throws off your PH balance. Ask your pediatrician for the print out so you measure it out right and are bathing her correctly. We put our daughter in the bath several times daily for 20 min at a time and it took a couple days to clear up.

Check your bath products (soap, bubble bath, etc) for an ingredient called "glycerin". It's very common in bubble bath and a great many other products. It is generally known as safe and, in and of itself it's not harmful, but is known for causing irritation in some women (and children).

Does she get yeast infections often? Maybe you can make sure she is wiping front to back as this causes infections frequently with young girls. Also, if the cream doesn't work there in oral medicine that does! There is a pill called fluconazole. It cures the entire infection with one pill so get to the docs and let them know its not working and you want to try an oral medicine!

Have you researched candida infection? Reducing processed sugar in her diet may help her body balance itself out too.

Talk to your doctor about using apple cider vinegar tabs. Apple cider is strong so you would want to ensure it is a correct amount but, it seems at 11 yrs old using one should not be harmful. Taking a tab with yogurt or honey will ensure keeping her tummy from any side affects like burning. Apple cider has natural antibiotic properties.

You may also want to check your soaps and detergent if they have any dyes it could be a culprit. I developed an allergy at 13 that did not show up at any time before that age to soaps caused me hives and yeast infections. My mother stoped using them and I slowly stopped having the issues.

Yogurt daily (helps with more than yeast infections) Check the ingredients on personal hygiene products, from your soap/bubble bath/shampoo to any 'freshness" wipes you may use. If she's menstruating, check the ingredients on the pads/tampons. I developed a horrible allergy to the Always products, which caused yeast infections. Once I stopped using any perfumed, plasticy products, (I went back to regular old Kotex brand) I haven't had one in over 15 years.

Also, you may think you covered this in potty training, but it's always best to go over it again...wipe front to back! A lot of girls don't know that any foreign matter in that area, whether it be fecal matter, tissue, lotions, soaps or whatever, will cause infection.

What a miserable thing to experience at 11 years old! Give her hugs from me :-)

My son had a yeast infection as a baby & I took him to a homeopath and she gave him some drops. They cleared it up really good. She also gave him a powder to help balance out the good/bad bacteria or something like that. Maybe keep her off wheat for awhile too? I get yeast infections in my throat, and going off wheat for a week or so does me wonders. Of course there's the good old Canesten, and you can get the tablets to go with it now too, they work good for me.
