Any child or vulnerable adult with STI symptoms needs to be evaluated by a health professional to determine the cause and to assess for possible abuse . STI symptoms are not normal in children and are worrisome in vulnerable adults because they may be caused by sexual injury and abuse if:
Symptoms can't be explained or they do not match the explanation.
Repeated symptoms occur.
Explanations change for how the symptoms are caused.
You may be able to prevent further abuse by reporting it.
If you suspect child abuse, call your local child or adult protective agency, police, or a health professional (such as a doctor, nurse, or counselor). The National Child Abuse Hotline and Referral Service is available at 1-800-422-4453.
