How To Deal With Menstruation Accompanied By Itching?
Hi, I am menstruating but it’s not like usual, this time it feels itchy and uncomfortable around mis-v even though I use sanitary pads as usual. And menstrual blood is not much and as if mixed with vaginal discharge what is the reason for itching? And how to overcome it ??
There are several causes of itching in the genitals during menstrual periods, namely:
Irritation due to the use of pads or tampons
Change pads more often, don't wait until they are full / moist
Use pads without perfume / fragrance
Avoid using feminine washing soap regularly
Hormonal changes and the condition of the vaginal flora during menstruation make them more susceptible to fungal infections
Symptoms: burning sensation in the genitals, pain when urinating, vaginal discharge such as lumpy cheese, reddish skin
Bacterial infection of the vagina
Symptoms: unpleasant vaginal odor, watery white or greyish greenish much foaming vaginal discharge, pain when urinating
Trichomoniasis vaginalis infection, sexually transmitted diseases
Symptoms: unpleasant vaginal odor, greenish-yellow vaginal discharge, soreness, reddish swelling in the pubic area
The diagnosis of these abnormalities is obtained from clinical symptoms, physical examination, and investigations such as vaginal swab to check vaginal mucus. Treatment for abnormalities due to infection according to the cause, can be in the form of antifungal and antibiotics that are inserted through the vagina or taken.
Try to maintain the cleanliness of the pubic area properly. Wash with mild soap and water (no perfume / no color) after every BAK / BAB from front to back. Change pads regularly. Don't wear pants too tight. Avoid unsafe sexual relations. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
