2 year old child, cut along the space between outer labia minora and inner labia majora. Advise?

Hi, I just noticed what seems like a cut along the space between my 2 year old daughter's outer labia minora and inner labia majora. Feeling quite freked out and can't wait to see a Doctor tomorrow, but could you give me a hint of what that could be? I've examined her and there doesn't seem to be any other sign of trauma on or around her vaginal area.

It must be really painful for the child.
You have not mentioned how she got the cut.?
How big in dimension it is?
Is there problem while passing urine?
At present you could apply some antibacterial cream and give her a painkiller if the cut is tiny.
However if the cut is big and oozing blood then you might need to get her examined in the emergency dept.

Take care.
