Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
The vaginal itching you are complaining about can be caused by the following conditions:
Allergic reactions or irritation of the female area, such as allergies to sanitary napkins, vaginal cleansers, underwear, vaginal lubricants)
Lack of cleanliness of the female area, for example the habit of cleaning the female area that is not clean after urinating
Genital lice infection (pthirus pubis): symptoms in the form of genital itching that can spread to the buttocks, thighs, lower abdomen, lower back. It is transmitted through sexual contact
Vaginal yeast infection (candidiasis): usually accompanied by vaginal discharge that is cheese-like, lumpy, and very itchy
Bacterial vaginal infection (bacterial vaginosis): grayish vaginal discharge with a fishy smell
Sexually transmitted infections GO / non-GO: yellowish vaginal discharge accompanied by lower abdominal pain due to inflammation of the cervix (cervicitis)
Wearing pants that are too tight
To determine the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will conduct an examination of your female area and the surroundings that you are complaining about. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as taking skin samples and vaginal fluids. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions. If necessary, or if the complaint does not improve, the doctor will likely refer you to a genital skin specialist for further tracking
Things you can do to improve and prevent the disease from worsening are:
Keep your feminine area clean.
Clean the vagina from front to back
Avoid scratching your feminine area as this can lead to wounds that lead to infection
You can take over-the-counter drugs such as cetirizine to relieve your itching
Dry the feminine area with a clean towel / tissue after cleaning with water
Avoid using feminine soap because the pH is not right can trigger the growth of excess germs in the female area
Avoid wearing pantyliners as they can cause vaginal moisture to become irritated
Don't wear pants that are too tight
Avoid unsafe sex. Use safety devices such as condoms to prevent sexually transmitted diseases
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
