Hi Doc, My daughter is 10 and she is blooming normally, she is comfortable with all the changes, but she asked me the other night why her vagina was itchy? She said there is no smell but there is a slight colouring in her panties from time to time. I told her the discharge was normal but I would find out about the itch. Is this something any normal GP would know about? What do you think it could be from and is it anything to be concerned about?

It could be thrush. Try some Canesten cream. This is not uncommon in young girls.
