Dangerous If The Betel Leaf Is Used To Treat Wounds On Miss V During Menstruation
Hello Doc, I want to ask, it’s been 4 days I missed my injury and it really disturbed my activities. I don’t know what caused it, because this wound arose when I woke up. I read an article about a wound on Miss V that the wound can be treated with boiled betel leaf water. But I am confused doc, is it permissible for me to be 17 years old to use the betel leaf boiled water? And can it be used when menstruating? How should I do?

Hello Devina, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Injury in the area of the state can indeed be caused by several possibilities such as due to irritation, allergic reactions, herpes infections, or folliculitis.
Each of these possible conditions has different therapeutic recommendations, so a doctor needs to be examined first to find out what conditions are causing the complaint, including whether or not using betel leaf boiled water. Although traditionally boiled water has been trusted by people in Indonesia as one ingredient that can help reduce complaints due to disturbance in the female area, there is still no clear research on its efficacy.
Therefore, at this time, you should check the complaint further to the doctor or online through the doctor's chat feature on the HealthReplies.com application to determine the cause and the treatment that should be given. In addition, you are not recommended to use boiled water or whipped betel leaves directly on the female area because it can cause irritation or worsening conditions until there are clear instructions from your doctor.
Keep your female area clean by:
Change your underwear every day with underwear that is clean, dry and made from soft
When using pads, make sure the pads you use are made of soft and routinely replaced a maximum of once every 8 hours
Avoid scratching your female area
Maintain the dryness of your female area
Avoid using soap cleansing female areas, especially those that have fragrances, temporarily
Avoid using tight pants
I hope this helps.
