Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itching of the skin can occur due to many factors, including:
Allergies to certain foods or ingredients
Immune system disorders / immune conditions
Nerve disorders or disorders
Psychological conditions such as stress, anxiety, fear, nervousness
Dry skin conditions
Skin fungal infection
So, regarding your case, we cannot determine exactly where the itching came from. In general, ovarian neoplasms will not show symptoms of itching on the skin, but in some cases there may be a small chance that this occurs when the neoplasm has caused hormonal changes or has spread to nerves and causes an itching sensation. So our advice, it would be much better if you check your condition with a dermatologist first, of course, by submitting a history of neoplasms that you have, so that further examination can be done and determine what you are actually experiencing. Treatment or medication that is suitable for you can vary, ranging from powder, ointment or oral medicine, but this will also be determined by your dermatologist after the examination.
Meanwhile, among what we can suggest to reduce itching in general is compressing the itchy part with a cold compress, try as much as possible not to scratch because by scratching, the itching will get stronger and even have the potential to cause wounds, sprinkle salicylic powder on the itchy part. , and avoid warm baths. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
