Child has itchy vagina, swollen clitoris, red, blister. What is it?

My 3 and a half year old said her vagina itches. So I told her to let me see because she was about to cry because it was a itching so badly. when she opened her leg she pointed to the clitoral hood area. when I saw it, it was swollen and red looks like a large blister on the side. she says it doesnt hurt, just itches really bad. what is causing this and what is it and is it treatable?
