Itching Between The Legs Radiating Down The Back?
I am a 19 year old woman, I have itchy between my legs and sometimes my back. And the wound is round, I already suffer from disease. This is for about 1 year. Sometimes the wound heals and goes away, but in a long time. And the itching switches from the right and left legs alternately. R nI once thought it was fungal itching, so I gave anti-fungal ointment (kalpanak) for 1 month of use but it didn’t heal, and it became dry and itchy when I scratched it. I have also applied fine garlic, and the result is dry itchy wounds. R nI feel very disturbed by this disease, and this makes me less confident about how to get rid of the disease. Here, please solve it, r nThank you.
Complaints of itching between the legs can indeed be caused by fungus. Itching caused by fungus generally causes a reddish or brownish rash with defined rings-like edges. The itching will be more pronounced when the skin is damp or sweaty.
But apart from being a yeast infection, complaints of itching between the legs can also be caused by other things such as:
Allergic contact dermatitis and irritation due to certain ingredients
To determine the cause of the itching you are experiencing requires an examination directly by a doctor. SUlit narrowed the diagnosis to skin cases without looking directly at the shape of the lesion. Apart from seeing and interviewing, the doctor can perform other physical examinations as well as supporting examinations to help make a diagnosis, either with a skin scraping test or a wood lamp test. Treatment of itching will also be tailored to your cause and condition.
Given that complaints of itching recur and move around, I suggest that you check with your doctor directly first so that you can do a more optimal examination to determine the cause. Then you can be given proper treatment by a doctor.
Meanwhile, there are a few tips you can do:
Keep feet not too damp and always clean
Use open footwear, if you wear closed footwear, try not to get wet
Avoid scratching the itchy area
Cold compress on the itchy area
Use calamine lotion to reduce itching
Use a mild, hypoallergenic soap
