Hello Igi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Itchy spots on the genitals can be caused by a variety of possibilities, including:
Skin infections, such as folliculitis, scabies, herpes, pubic lice infections, fungal infections (candida or tinea cruris)
Vaginal infections, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, fungal infections (candida), bacterial vaginosis, etc.
Various types of dermatitis, for example contact dermatitis, intertriginous dermatitis (inflammation of the skin in the fold), atopic dermatitis
Other skin diseases, such as lichen planus, psoriasis, etc.
Abnormal conditions of the skin must be examined directly to determine the exact cause. Therefore you should go to a dermatologist and a genital practitioner to be able to do a direct examination of the skin in your genital area. The doctor can also recommend additional examinations such as examination with a wood lamp, swab on the lesion, or vaginal swab if there is vaginal discharge.
In the meantime some things you can do:
Don't scratch the itchy area
Use underwear that is soft and absorbs sweat
Avoid using underpants and outer tights too tight
Change your underwear when it's wet, or use a panty liner and change every 3-4 hours or when it's wet
Dry your pubic area well after you finish a bowel or bladder
Do not use certain chemicals that can irritate the pubic area (such as deodorant or perfume)
Avoid the use of deodorizers and softeners to wash underwear
Avoid exchanging underwear and towels with other people
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
