Itching under right rib cage, rectal pain, normal stool, no constipation

My 7 year old daughter has been having severe itching under her right rib cage off and on for the past few days. No itching on any other parts of the body. She has also been complaining of rectal pain--but not during bowel movements. She has been having normal stools and no signs of constipation . What could this be?

Hi welcome to H.C.M.Forum. anal itching during night could be due to worms in the intestine.
some times the pin worms scrawl to the body and cause itching. there may be some boils under the bone cage.
there may be fungal infection or pricly heat.
i advise you to cmnsult a skin specialist for diagnosis
