Itching On The Lower Skin That Extends To The Thighs And Genitals?
Hello, I want to ask. On the skin under my abdomen up to my left thigh and my genital skin is itchy, small bumps appear reddish in color and turn brown. This has been going on for more than 3 years, at first it was just an itchy and just around the genitals, and over time I scratched and eventually widened to my stomach and thighs. I have tried taking an itch drug at the pharmacy, but it hasn’t disappeared either (initially it disappeared but after it appeared itching again until now). And how to overcome it? Thank you 🙂
Have you ever seen a doctor especially because this complaint has occurred for 3 years? Complaints of itching accompanied by a red rash can be caused by:
ringworm scabies contact dermatitis eczema psoriasis If you only take medication to reduce the symptoms of itching and not treat the cause of course this complaint will still exist. Please consult with your skin specialist directly. In addition to asking about this complaint, your doctor also needs to examine the skin rash that you are trying to determine the cause. If necessary, the doctor will conduct further tests such as biopsy. After confirming the cause, the doctor will determine the next treatment for you.
Please avoid scratching the itchy part. Keep the genital area clean and dry. Avoid using tight pants and use underwear that is easy to absorb sweat. Always make sure you wash your sheets, pillowcases and blankets regularly.
I hope this helps.
