The Groin Is Red And Painful At 4 Months Of Pregnancy?

Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There are complaints of pain and redness on the groin during pregnancy is likely caused by skin irritation of your groin. When you are pregnant, your thigh circumference will usually increase, where increasing weight, accumulation of fat, and increased body fluids will increase the size of your thigh circumference. Therefore, the risk of friction between the skin in the folds of the thighs and friction with the underwear you use can cause your skin to become inflamed, especially if the skin moisture in your groin is increased. To help reduce this irritation and friction, you can use lotion powder on your groin area, dry your groin, and don't use undersized underwear or underwear that increases friction on your groin. However, this needs to be confirmed directly by your obstetrician.
Several other conditions can also cause the same complaint, such as:
2. Dermattis contact
3. yeast infection
4. bacterial infection
5. a wound
You should discuss with your obstetrician to ascertain the cause of this complaint. Obstetricians will see the condition of your groin skin, if necessary the doctor will refer to a dermatologist. With a direct examination, the doctor can find out the cause of this complaint. Furthermore, care and treatment will be given by your doctor.
For now, avoid excessive scratching on the groin area or other body parts to prevent irritation and injury, avoid going too far, choose underwear that does not trigger friction in the groin, use a moisturizing lotion powder to reduce this inflammation. For treatment, it will be given directly by your doctor, because I cannot provide treatment without direct examination.
