Itching: While you did not say how old your daughter is, i will assume given your age she is quite young (pediatric case). It is not at all uncommon for young girls to develop yeast infections, and what you describe certainly could represent that diagnosis. As in adult women, the treatment is much the same, and it is wise you see your family doc or pediatrician for a prescription.

See your doctor: These symptoms can only be adequately diagnosed only after a thorough evaluation by your doctor. This may include labs and other satudies. Once all of the information is in, your doctor can let you know what's going on, and what to do to help you.

A 20-year-old female asked about a 10-year-old female:
My daughter (10) still has the itchiness in her vagina, should I get it checked at, or get it checked via online, right now?

Vaginitis: This does not sound like an emergency. I would make an appointment with your regular doctor to get this checked out especially if you try the baths and things do not improve. You may also try a barrier cream after the baths in case the irritation is causing itching
