Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Thank you for your question.

Itching of private parts alone or associated with symptoms of fever can be due to infections(urinary tract infections). Give her lots of fluids especially citric fruit juices like lemon juice. Proper hygiene. If the symptom persists
I would suggest you to take her to your family doctor/paediatrician for further evaluation and investigation.

I hope this answers your query. Good luck.

With best regards,
I find this answer helpful
