Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching in the genitals can be due to allergies, irritation, dry skin, infections, insect bites, drug effects, hormonal fluctuations, seborrheic dermatitis, or many other possibilities. This condition, as long as it is handled appropriately, is often harmless and can recover in a short time.
The medicines that your doctor gives are useful for relieving itching and allergies (cetirizine), dealing with bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections (doxycycline and flagystatin). Not all of these drugs must be consumed continuously until they run out. Anti-itch and allergy medications that doctors give for example, you only need to consume if it still feels itchy enough to bother it. Late consuming cetirizine can indeed reduce the effectiveness of the drug's action. As a result, you may feel intense itching due to your condition that has not healed completely. However, this is usually not fatal if only happens once. Different conditions if the forgotten are 2 other drugs. Because, 2 other drugs that doctors prescribe to you its function is to eradicate the bacteria, fungi, and parasites that cause itching in the genitals. If the consumption of this drug is done irregularly, there is susceptibility to resistance which makes your complaint more difficult to cure and very easy to repeat later in life.
It's better if you don't panic at all times. Continue to take medicine as usual, as the doctor recommends to you. To prevent you from forgetting to take your medication again, try setting an alarm, writing down your medication schedule in a place that is easily visible, or asking your relatives to remind you to take medicine.
In order for itching in the genitals to heal faster, in addition to taking a doctor's medication, also do the following steps:
Don't scratch your itchy genitals, especially with dirty hands
Diligent showering, clean the genitals with clean water, no need to use soap or deodorizer

If after undergoing treatment, your complaints have not improved, try to check yourself again to a doctor or a specialist in skin and genitals so that it is treated further.
