Genital sensitivity

My 5 year old daughter has been struggling with genital sensitivity for quite some time now. It is getting more noticeable now that she is wearing bathing suits. She complains that it feels like she's "stuck together."

We have tried different types of diaper ointments and they helped temporarily, however she now complains that the ointments are sticking to her underwear.

During the day, she frequently squats (almost walking like she has something between her legs) or stretches one leg out to the side to relieve this feeling. My husband and I don't know what to do. She does not appear to have any type of rash, etc.

It is also not a sensitivity to clothing as she will do this when naked as well. please help!
