Scarey Painful Rashes

My granddaughter is in foster care and came up with a horrible rash inside her genital area. It looks like cauliflower she never says owie and now she says owie..so it hurts her, it has spread down her legs inside and now she has scratches and scars on her rear end. What kind of rashes are these? We are not aloud to take her to the hospital ..the care taker was ordered for 1 week now and has not complied. We are devastated and scared to death what is going on. :(

Granddaughter case
by: Anonymous

Your granddaughter might have been sexually abused and I suggest you insist on taking her to the doctors, if the care taker refuses you will need to inform the police about your concerns. Please do it as a matter of urgency. thanks

Your Granddaughter was abused

I agree with above...TBH, it sounds like genital warts, and yes, I am sure they are very painful. You need to call the police and A. Have the care takers investigated B. Have them arrested C. Have the police force them to take her to the doctors or D. All of the above. If I knew of a child that this was happening to, I'd call CYS, EVEN IF I DIDN'T KNOW WHO THE CHILD WAS, and have those people arrested. As a mother of 3, and having babysat children before, I know that there is no such rash that looks like cauliflower that is not caused from anything other than an STD. It breaks my heart reading this, and having to respond with this answer. I wish you the best. Good luck and God bless.

Grandchild's "rash"
by: Anonymous

The rash could certainly be an STD but it could also be some other type of rash. It's best to have an MD check it out immediately. Call the caseworker and if nothing is done within 24 hours, call the supervisor. I would not sit idle because your grandchild deserves medical treatment. If they say they couldn't get an appointment any sooner, I would demand she be taken to urgent care or the ER. What if it is an infection? Going without treatment could be incredibly dangerous to her health- and I would say that when talking to the caseworker. However, I think it is wrong to assume the caretaker is to blame or abusing the child (even if it is HPV) because warts are very contagious. Foster kids normally get visits with family members too so it could be someone other than foster parents. Some babies are born with HPV from their mother. Even using the same towel as someone with them can infect you and they can also be transmitted from contact (such as when a diaper is being changed without washing hands first). So, I would suggest getting a professional opinion first before jumping to conclusions. A doctor can check the little girl's hymen to see if it is still intact also. The first and best thing to do is to make sure that baby gets medical attention- even if it means you have to reap repercussions of not "following the rules" and taking her to the doctor yourself. No judge in their right mind would say grandma was wrong to insist on immediate medical care if she really has a bad rash like that.
