This is a very common problem in young girls especially after they have had an antibiotic recently.it is not the result of sexual abuse. It is important to give her a probiotic such as Probiflora Chidren's tablets once daily for 10 days. Apply Nystatin cream twice daily to her vaginal area.If she does not clear after 10 days she will need an antifungal treatment such as a once off single dose of Diflucan 150mg capsule
