This may be a normal discharge if it is only a slight discharge and has a whitish colour.If the discharge has a bad smell or has a yellow or brownish colour and there is quite a lot of discharge your daughter may have an infection. It would be best to ask your doctor to see her if you are worried about this discharge.
