How To Deal With Itching In The Vagina?
I want to ask, I suddenly felt itchy in my vagina and like there was water, he said it was genital herpes, but I have never had sexual intercourse, can genital herpes be transmitted other than sexual intercourse? Then how long will it take to heal? And what medicine do I need? Thank you doctor
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Complaints of itching in the genital area are not always caused by genital herpes, especially if there is no history of prior sexual contact. Some causes that cause such symptoms for example:
1. Contact with irritants
2. Skin diseases such as eczema or psoriasis
3. Bacterial vaginosis
4. Candida fungal infections
5. Sexually exchange diseases, such as trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, genital warts, or genital herpes
In your case, further examination by a doctor should be done so that the symptoms you feel can be confirmed through a direct physical examination. Proper diagnosis through adequate examination is very important to determine the right therapy in the future so that it is hoped that the disease will be handled completely.
If complaints of itching of the genitalia are also accompanied by redness of the vulva, pain, wounds or fluid-filled nodules, urinary disorders, excessive vaginal discharge and odor, or pain during intercourse, do not hesitate to consult a doctor immediately for further evaluation.
That's all, hope you can help.
