Is this normal?


Q: I have had issues with my daughter not wanting to wear underwear since she was little. I never put much thought into just thought she was being picky. She is now almost 11 and the other night after she showered she had asked me to dry off her feet, while I was drying them off i happen to notice that her lybia and even the area where her pee comes from seems to hang down very far. I have never seen this before and after asking her, this is why she does not like to wear not only underwear but also jeans because everything rubs against it and hurts and irratates the area. The lips of her vaginal area do not hang down at all. I am not sure as to why this is or if there is anything that can be done to fix this and give her comfort when she wears clothing. I am extremely concerned because she will be coming into puberty soon and will need to wear underwear and a pad and I am afraid of this hurting her in that area??
