Itching And Burning Sensation In The Vagina For 3 Days?
Good afternoon doctor, I’m a 24 year old woman
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are many possible causes of itching and burning in the vagina. One of them could be related to infection. The trigger of this infection can be various, among the most common are fungi or bacteria. This infection can also be related to unsafe sexual activity, for example if you often have sex with partners who have no clear sexual history, changing partners, and not wearing condoms.
In addition to risky sexual behavior, several other factors can also increase a woman's risk of developing vaginal infections, for example:
Poor personal hygiene - Poor body resistance, for example in people with diabetes, HIV / AIDS, long-term consumption of steroid drugs. Irrational use of antibiotics --- This can cause disruption of the balance of normal flora in the body, including around the genitals. As a result, pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms are easier to multiply and cause disease. Apart from infection, it is also possible that the itching and burning sensation in your vagina arises due to other causes, not always related to the illness and medication you were undergoing before, for example:
Irritation or allergies, such as from contact with soap, sexual lubricants, certain clothing materials. Insect bites Neurodermatitis (chronic skin inflammation triggered by stress) Hormonal changes, for example before menstruation Dry vagina (usually related to family planning side effects, lack of estrogen), and so As an initial treatment, you should not immediately take the drug. First do the following efforts so that complaints get better:
Do not scratch excessively itchy vagina Clean the vagina regularly, use cool water (not warm water) that is clean Dry the vagina well before wearing clothes Choose cotton underwear Also choose loose and soft pants Avoid risky sexual behavior Do not use materials that are are irritating around the vagina, for example fragrance soap, etc. However, if the complaint does not improve within 1 to 3 days, you should check it directly with your doctor for further treatment, ok?
I hope this helps.
