Is it normal for a seven year girl to have a white discharge?
Q: I have a cousin who is 7 years old. She is getting a frequent white discharge. After coming from school she feels very weak. She is very lean and thin and does not eat well too. Is it normal for a girl of 7 years to have white discharge? What is the reason behind this? Is she thin because of this problem?
A:No it is not normal to get white discharge which is so noticeable as to create problems. She needs to be seen by a paediatrician. Does the discharge smell, does it itch, is there inappropriate handling of genitals? No, the discharge does not cause thinness. The reasons could be physiological, vaginitis, foreign body, etc. Weakness could be due to poor eating.
