Causes Of Itching And White That Sticks To The Vagina?
Hello doctor … I was married 8 months ago, today I have an itch on Miss VS. After I was curious, I checked it out for myself, it was obvious that there was white sticking and it was difficult to clean with water. Finally, I tried searching on Google, there is a way to clean with warm water + salt. Then I practiced and thank God, it just improved a little itchy now. My questions are (1) what do you think is the cause of the white itchiness and itching in my miss V? (2) how do I avoid such things? (3) what should I do for now so that the itchy residual itching disappears permanently? Please enlighten me N Thank you🙏
Hello mrs. Nuraeni, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Generally, every woman will easily experience itching on Miss V, especially in women who are married. Actually itching accompanied by the onset of fungus that infects the vagina or in health science is called vaginal candidiasis. Candidiasis is caused by a fungus called the Candida fungus. Some of the factors that cause candidiasis are easily experienced by women are:
use of antibiotics
decreased body condition / decreased immunity
the condition of female sex organs that are too moist
chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus or HIV / AIDS
high humidity at miss V
use clothes that are too tight
poor V cleanliness
use of corticosteroid drugs is high or in the long run
rarely change underwear
However, to make sure you should check with your doctor or genital dermatologist for a careful examination. If additional testing is needed, it is possible to do tests such as skin culture and urine analysis. For treatment, it can only be ascertained whether the cause of the disease is true due to fungus, so this can only be ascertained when you consult with a doctor. As for prevention so that the condition does not get worse, we recommend to:
use underwear that does not increase humidity with underwear made from cotton
if the underwear is wet or too damp, you need to replace it with a new one
Avoid using pantyliners too often because they can interfere with air circulation in the Miss V area
choose underwear or pants that are loose
Consumption of yogurt regularly to maintain health, especially on Miss V
while avoiding using female soap
consumption of healthy and nutritious foods, multiply vegetables and fruit, reduce the consumption of foods and drinks that contain high sugar levels
Thus we can convey, hopefully the information we convey, can be useful for you. thanks.
