Vulvitis is a frequent infection in young girls. Fourty prepubertal children with recurrent vulvitis were submitted, besides usual local hygiene rules, to a twice daily toilet with a cleansing base containing colloidal oat extract (Emulave fluid). It was associated with a colouring product in case of severe local inflammation during the first days of treatment. Minimal duration of the treatment was 15 days. In cases of long-term use, exceeding 3 months, no recurrence of local infection was observed. In all cases, tolerance was excellent.
