This is normal and is not the reason for your daughter's complaint of itching.She may have a candida infection especially if she has had antibiotics recently.Give her a probiotic such as Probiflora daily for 10 days. Apply Nystatin Cream to her vagina twice daily. If she is not better after 10 days please take her to see a doctor.
