How do I stop my almost 4-yr-old daughter from exploring her genitals?

My almost four-year-old daughter keeps touching her privates, only at night because I never catch her, and giving herself rashes. She's been potty trained since she was 2 but this behavior only started around four months ago, when I brought the new baby home, we talked to her about it and the rashes stopped for a while but now she's doing it again. Sometimes the rashes are really bad-I've brought her to the doctor but they just tell me that it's normal to explore and give me a cream for it. I'm so aggrivated but I'm worried that she will do serious harm to herself. Any suggestions are so absolutely welcome...please!

Just make sure that you wash her hands before she goes to bed, the doctors are right it's completely normal.
