Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The presence of itching complaints that you feel before menstruation may be the influence of female hormonal fluctuations that occur before menstruation. The existence of an autoimmune progesterone drmatitis condition or the effect of hormonal progesterone which increases complaints of rashes on the skin. This autoimmune reaction is not completely understood in the process, and this complaint rarely occurs in women, even if it occurs, complaints that are often experienced in the form of complaints before the menstrual itching, and improve a few days after menstruation appears.
In general, this autoimmune reaction to hormonal increases in the premenstrual phase, where the level of female hormonal progesterone increases which affects the immune response to the body itself, thereby increasing complaints of itching. Another possibility is that the increase in progesterone before menstruation increases hypersensitive response to other allergens, especially if you or the patient has a history of allergies (or a family with a history of allergies). However, all of this needs to be turned off directly by the obstetrician or dermatologist to ensure an autoimmune reaction to progesterone dermatitis (APD).
The doctor will evaluate the possibility of general complaints that accompany patients with APD, such as urtic rashes or bumps, redness of the skin, skin irritation, inflammation of the mulit cavity, or in the form of general complaints of itching all over the body or certain body parts. In addition, doctors can plan supporting examinations to confirm this APD, one of which is by testing for allergies to progetseron, testing for provocation by taking pills or injections of the hormone progesterone, or by conducting a biopsy. If the results support the APD, the doctor will plan treatment and treatment for you.
If the results of the examination are negative, the doctor will consider other possible medical causes, such as fungal infections, viral infections, types of allergens, or other autoimmune diseases.
Therefore, for now you can do several things, such as:
1. Visit your doctor immediately
2. avoid physical fatigue and stress before menstruation
3. avoid sleeping late at night before menstruation and during menstruation
So that we can convey.
