Good evening, sorry to ask. At first my labia mayora itched, over time the itchiness turned into a long sorrow, if I may know what disease it is. And what is the medicine for pain? thanks.

Hi Fiqoh,

Labia mayora (the outer lips of the vagina) are the folds of skin that make up the vulva (the outer part of womanhood). The onset of itching in the area can be caused by the following conditions:

 Skin irritation due to clothing friction, physical trauma or chemical exposure Allergic reactions Skin infections by fungus or bacteria Itching due to skin irritation or allergic reactions generally will gradually improve, however if complaints persist or worsen it should be checked by a physician to ensure the cause so that treatment right can be given.

The doctor will ask for a history of your complaints, conduct a physical examination and supporting examinations if needed. Investigations that can be recommended by doctors are skin scrapings or wood lamp checks. If the complaint is caused by skin irritation, your doctor may prescribe anti-irritation creams and antihistamine drugs such as cetirizine to help resolve your complaint.

If there is an infection, the doctor will prescribe an appropriate antibiotic, for example gentamicin ointment for bacterial infections or antifungal ointments such as griseofulvin for fungal infections. In addition to handling a doctor, you should also avoid conditions that can trigger and worsen complaints, use clothing with comfortable materials and not scratch the part that is complained of.

May be useful,
