Is The Normal Clitoris Thick And Rounded?
Hello, I want to ask, is it normal or dangerous for the clitoris to become thick and bulbous? This happened a day ago when I scratched for quite a long time on the clitoris, then I washed it with the aim of itching disappear. But when I wash I feel the clitoris is very thick then I see in the glass it really becomes thick and then big rounded. Please answer and thank you in advance.
Hello Nita, Thank you for the question.
This condition is not dangerous but requires further medical treatment if the complaint does not improve within a few days. Your complaints can be caused by the cause of the itch itself, for example due to vulvovaginitis, which is an infection or inflammation of the genital lips and vagina. Some triggers for vulovaginitis are fungal infections / candidiasis, irritation, or allergic reactions. Vulvovaginitis causes symptoms of itching or burning sensation in the genital area, redness or swelling in the genital area, abnormal vaginal discharge, or pain in the vagina. Furthermore, the act of scratching the itchy area causes further inflammation of the skin so that the skin on the genital lips becomes red and swollen. You can do a cold compress with a clean cloth on the area 4-6 times a day to help reduce inflammation. You are also advised not to use soap in these areas, avoid scratching the itchy area, avoid using tight pants, and using underwear that is easy to absorb sweat. If within a few days this complaint does not improve and you still feel itching in your pubic area, please check with your doctor immediately for further examination. A direct doctor's examination is needed to ascertain the cause so that the doctor can provide appropriate treatment.
Hopefully this information is useful.
