Child gets severe itching, burning and tiny bumps on vagina. What could the cause be?

My 8 year old daughter genitals started off red, didn t think to much abt it, did the baking soda , went away for a little bit but came back worse... this usually only happens at night, the severe itching, and burning, and there are little tiny bumps on the labia , both sides, not many, I figured it was from her scratching , but I dont recall her scratching down there. Everytime I take her to the e.r. they just said me home with ointment. We are very clean people, my children are also. She has neve been touched down there either, that s the first thing they ask. If my children are not with me they re at school. Please could you help, it would greatly be appriciated

General & Family Physician 's  Response
your daughter might be having a fungal infection in her genital area you need to ask her if she has any kind of a discharge coming out and how is her urine does she feel pain when passing urine or goes to the toilet many times to urinate.
you should get her urine checked to rule out infection
check how her hygiene is like if it is bad then she can have itchiness.
you need to also see that the swellings that she has are not boils
would suggest take her to see a gynecologist for further investigation and appropriate treatment.
hope to have answered your query
