Nervous system stimulants have helped my son tremendously with this clothing issue. We still have struggles but it's so much better. Expect it to get worse before it gets better. The medicine was horrible for about 3 days and then slowly his body adjusted and clothes and shoes became tolerable. We still have issues but can at last find some things he can tolerate. For him that means 100% polyester or polyester/spandex blend and knee high socks (he likes compression and tight fit clothes) but they're all different. People assume he wants very soft loose clothing - wrong. He wants heavier and tight clothing! And no underwear. Good luck to you and your daughter. I do believe as they age they figure out what works and will be fine. I believe I have spd although never diagnosed.

You MUST find a specialist doctor who can help. The child must be suffering and needs help. Worrying is natural but not enough. Hasten to find a doctor who can help. Most probably medication will help rather than finding clothes that will not itch.
