Hello Indah, thank you for the question in the HealthReplies.com forum.
Scabies or commonly referred to as scurvy, is a disease in which there is a parasitic infection (small insects such as lice) scabies that live on the skin of the body. This infection has the typical symptoms of itching in certain areas that have a fairly thin layer of skin such as between the fingers or toes, body folds (groin or armpits) and also the genital area where the itching is mainly felt at night day.
Basically, this disease is caused by the presence or absence of a scabies parasitic infection, so this disease is not related to the menstrual cycle, because this parasite can cause infection at any time as long as the parasite lives on the skin of the body.
If you often feel the itching associated with the menstrual cycle, this may not be caused by scabies, but is caused by other causes that may be related to hormonal changes in the body such as inflammation of the skin due to a reaction to certain menstrual hormones, allergic reaction which only appears during menstruation and others.
Therefore, you should check with your doctor to ascertain whether the complaint that you feel every time you menstruate is indeed caused by a scabie disease or is caused by another disease. After determining which causes the treatment will be done to achieve maximum treatment. For the time being, it is recommended that you always maintain a clean body and also the environment around you, and avoid direct and indirect contact (such as borrowing clothes, borrowing towels) with people suspected of having scabies, because these parasites can be transmitted easily.
