Blackened Genital Skin, Rashes Appear And Feel Sore?
Good night, I’m Hana I’m a middle school student. I want to ask about the “symptoms of venereal disease” lately my genitals are black and there is a rash, my genitals also hurt when I wash with soap. Is this a venereal disease?
Hello Hana! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Rashes and blackening of the vaginal skin can occur due to inflammation and irritation. This often happens to women, especially at a very young age like you. To overcome this, use cotton underwear and is quite loose. Avoid using underpants or pants that are too tight. If you are overweight, try to lose weight by regulating a healthier diet and increasing physical activity. Tight pants or excess weight will cause more friction in the vaginal area, making it easier to irritate.
You should not use soap to clean the vagina. In the vagina, you should only use clean water. Soap can actually interfere with good germs that play a role in protecting your vagina. Soap will also cause acidic conditions in the vagina to become alkaline, making infection easier. In the rash area, you can try using a moisturizer (for example diaper creams commonly used by babies) to reduce pain. Avoid using moisturizers that have fragrance. If the rash persists and the pain gets worse, come to the doctor to be examined directly.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
