I changed my 19 month old daughters nappy this morning as she had done a poo (soft). There was quite alot of poo and some of it had gone around her vagina. When I wiped it clean (gently) there was blood on the wipe. It was a pinky red colour. Once all the poo was off I wiped around the entrance to her vagina really gently again and there was more. About 3 hours has passed and when I just checked her nappy then there is light streaks of red/brown blood in it. Has anyone else experienced this in their daughter? What did you do? She seems happy enough. She stops playing when she is doing a wee and stands still but doesn't really show signs of discomfort or pain.

I havent experienced this with DD, however, I do know that she used to 'play' quite roughly down there, and if I didnt file her nails properly she would end up with scratches down there.
Can you see anywhere where she might have scratched? Have you caught her playing before?

I couldn't see any marks or scratches. It did look red though (not nappy rash red but closer to the opening). She always has a nappy on so doesn't really have a chance to scratch herself and when she doesn't wear a nappy its at bathtime or straight after and I am always with her and I haven't seen her playing yet. Shes asleep at the moment so I am curious to see what is in her nappy when she wakes up. I wonder if she has a UTI?

My dd sometimes gets a bit red and sore down there after she has done a really yucky poop. It has bled a little and I was concerned but just cleaned her up. Put some nappy cream on and it healed over night. I think it was just urine and yucky poop and friction in the nappy.
