See doctor: This is something that will need examination and advice by her pediatrician. Possibilities inlcude yeast infection (which can be difficult to diagnose), allergy (e.g. to detergent?), and other causes. Impossible to tell for sure, or to provide treatment advice, except by examination in person.
