Causes Itching In All The Folds Of The Body Down To The Shaft Of The Penis?
Good afternoon,. I want a consultation. My friend is 30 years old, he experienced itching in almost all folds of his body even up to (apologize) in the trunk of his genitals. Itching is like water lice. Is this because of fungus, bacteria because of frequent sleep in any place or because of free sex ?? Please explain. thank you
Hello, Kama Kaze, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Complaints of itching on the folds of the body to the genital shaft (penis) can be caused by several things, including:
Fungal infections can occur if the area is often sweaty, rarely change underwear or use clothing that can cause a moist atmosphere, or use certain medications that disturb the balance of the skin. Mites (scabies) can occur due to an infected person through contact with the person infected with the mite for example by wearing the person's clothes or towels, itching at night, forming a tunnel (canaliculi) under the skin (itchy area), and is located in the area with thin skin such as between the fingers, folds underarms, groin folds, or genital areas. Contact dermatitis is inflammation of the skin caused by contact with a substance that attaches to the skin. In this complaint you should immediately see a specialist skin and genitals, antihistamines can only treat the itching symptoms that arise temporarily but do not treat the cause, so it is necessary to meet with a dermatologist to get the right treatment, and maintain the cleanliness of the genital area.
Thus, hopefully useful
