Overcoming Black Spots On The Vulva?
Hallo..rnLook, before the black spot appeared on the vulva area, there was a small spot, about 2 months ago there was a small spot.. Then for 3 days the small spot turned into a black spot, it doesn’t really feel when you touch it, and I feel itching that goes on and on in the small spots which later turn into black spots… Do you think it’s dangerous, so what steps should I take?rnThank you…
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of black spots on the vulva can be normal, for example if the spots are caused by moles (nevus). This condition is formed due to the deposition of cells that produce skin pigment (melanocytes).
Black patches on the vulva can also appear for other reasons, for example:
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation Tinea cruris (genital yeast infection) Macula cafe au lait Syphilis (lion king, Treponema pallidum infection) Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with an allergen or irritant) Melanoma (malignant tumor formed from melanocytes) Folliculitis (root infection) hair) Neurofibromatosis (tumor on nerve tissue), etc. The itching you feel can indicate an inflammation. However, this does not specifically refer to a particular disease.
The wise step that you should do right now is, check yourself directly with a dermatologist and gynecologist. That way, the possible originator of your complaint can be identified, and it can also be determined whether there is a medical action that needs to be done or not.
At this time, always keep your genitals clean, namely by always cleaning it after every bowel movement, avoid casual sex, and always wear clean and soft pants. Even if it's itchy, you shouldn't scratch your vulva too much, as this can cause irritation. Avoid wearing tights and vaginal care products that contain fragrances or other irritating substances.
Hope it helps ya..
