Please help. My 9 year old (overweight if that matters) daughter has had bad odor lately from her vaginal area. Smells like urine and fishy. I work in a nursing home so I know to compare it to the smell the older people get when they arent cleaned enough. We have her showering daily and washing with a feminine soap and changing her underwear twice a day. The underwear, even after being bleached, look like theyre dirty in the crotch part still. Every three weeks or so she needs new ones. The smell seems embedded in it and her. She has not started her period yet.. we have an appointment with her peditrician to discuss but just wondering what you guys think?View Thread
