Thanks for your query.
For adolescent girls and even for women in general, it is normal during certain phases of the menstrual cycle to have excessive vaginal discharge which could crust up and dry on the undergarments.
Some amount of vaginal discharge is normal.
Without examining your daughter, it is difficult to day if the discharge is abnormal.
Abnormal discharge could be due to some vaginal infection.

Please take her to a Gynecologist for a thorough XXXXXXX check up, more so, if she was sexually active.

Take care.
Feel free to ask further.
