I still had an unbearable itchiness … even though it was 5 years ago I gave birth … And sometimes without realizing it I scratch slowly … The color is light green but odorless … I often wear tight jeans, what effect does it … Please explain … Thank you …
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itching is indeed one of the symptoms that often appears in wound healing, be it a wound due to surgery or other things, including because it is in one of the recovery phases, and because itching is delivered by the same nerve fibers as pain. But after 5 years have passed, there are several other possibilities that could cause itching to appear in the area, including:
Infection. Infections caused by bacteria, fungi, or parasites in your female organs, can cause symptoms of itching followed by discharge. Mite or insect bites. Certain invisible animals live around the pubic area because of the humidity, and also because of the pubic hair that is present. Shaving pubic hair is one way to avoid nesting mites. Chemical irritant. Scented vaginal cleaners, scented pads and scented toilet paper can irritate and cause abnormal discharge.
In your case, it would be more appropriate if you check your condition with a dermatologist and genitalia specialist so that you can see immediately whether the symptoms you feel are more referring to stitch marks or other symptoms. If needed, your doctor may take a sample of the light green liquid you mentioned for examination in the laboratory. Treatment will depend on the cause. Your doctor will give antibiotics if there is a suspicion of a bacterial infection, and antifungals if there is a suspicion of a yeast infection, for example.
It's true that the use of tight jeans can have an effect. Proper use can make the vagina moist and facilitate the growth of bacteria and fungi. So you should avoid wearing too tight pants, avoid using stockings, wear cotton underwear, avoid wearing underwear at night, and wash your genitals from front to back.
Meanwhile, our advice is to avoid scratching the itchy area as much as possible, take medications that contain antihistamines, give calamine powder or lotion that is sold freely to reduce itching by reading the instructions listed and cold compress the itchy area to help reduce itching.
