Itchy vulva

DD (9) has an itchy vulva. It's keeping her awake and she's very uncomfortable, I just don't know what to do. It's not red and there's no discharge so it seems to be some kind of non specific vulvovaginitis. I've tried a cold compress and have just resorted to calpol, any thoughts what it could be and how I can make her more comfortable?

Yes could be threadworms.

Is there any chance that she is beginning to grow pubic hair? My daughter had terrible trouble with this for a few months. She was a bit older than your dd though - 10 going on 11, I think. It drove her nuts.

Thank you, hadn't even considered threadworms but reading the symptoms it seems likely. Yay for MN!
