Hi, my name's Monica, I have a 21 month old daughter. For the last 6 months I have noticed that every time she's strapped to her high chair or pushchair, she pushes herself backwards and forwards, as if her back was hurting. She doesn't cry or moan, she just does it every time. Her stomach protrudes a lot when she does it. Should I be concerned that it has something to do with back pain or curvature of the spine? Thank you.
Hello. My name is Katie and I suffer from cystitis regularly, I also have been given 'trimethoprim' as an antibiotics. I have had this problem since the age of two and am now 16. Try applying Vaseline to the area - this soothes the pain from where the vagina is inflamed and dry, make sure your child drinks plenty of water, avoid soap and bubble bath products whilst bathing, look out for a liquid medicine called 'Potassium Citrate Mixture' at your local pharmacy. This liquid medicine is diluted in water and relieves the symptoms of cystitis within 15 minutes. Also another thing you can try for your child is to have a hot water bottle positioned towards the bottom of the spine at night time, this will help soothe the pain and I would definitely advise to wear cotton underwear due to the fact that it is comfortable to wear. Make sure that your child hasn't cut herself in the area and that she wipes herself form after using the toilet correctly; front to back. Hope my advice is helpful! Best of luck, hope your child feels better soon x
