Treatment For Itching Around The Vagina That Is Spreading?
Assallamualaikum, my name is Dewi Eka (20th). Exactly one month this time I feel symptoms of itching around my womanhood. And the more I scratched the itch it spread to my stomach, later, my hands, neck, thighs and waist (made an impression). I felt this itching after coming down from the mountain. And I tried to see a doctor, the doctor said “excessive sweating” and I was given a prescription. Well, from there I changed toiletries etc. Including soap, and I use feminine antiseptics more regularly. R nMy questions: r n1. Am I possibly affected by the lice, or just prickly heat? R n2. Can this feminine antiseptic anticipate the appearance of genital lice? R nPlease for a solution, thank you. R nWassallamualaikum.

If not treated properly, itching in the female area can spread to the surrounding area. There are many possible triggers for this itching, including excessive sweating.
Increased sweat production, including for example due to high activity, hot environmental temperatures, the use of tights, and so on can make the area around femininity become moist. This condition can make it easier for microorganisms, especially fungi to reproduce. This fungus is most likely what triggers a severe itching sensation, even tends to heat. If you scratch the itchy skin due to fungus, then this itching can spread, even spread to other people who have direct or indirect contact with the hand you used to scratch. In addition to itching, fungal infections around the woman can also make the skin around the rash become red, sore, dry, scaly, and peeling. Not only a yeast infection, excessive sweating around the genitals can also cause prickly heat (miliaria) which can also feel itchy.
In addition to fungal infections and prickly heat that arise due to excessive sweat production, it could also be that the itching you experience occurs due to other causes, for example:
Other infections, such as due to genital lice, bacteria, viruses Inflammation of the skin due to other causes, such as contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, neurodermatitis, drug eruptions, allergies, psychological disorders, etc. Without direct advice from a doctor, you should not use excessive feminine antiseptic soap, especially those in which it contains fragrance. The use of soap like this often actually causes the population of good microorganisms (normal flora) around the female area to be disturbed, and as a result the proliferation of pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms is increasingly rampant.
If you have had your complaint checked by a doctor and given medication, you should first use the treatment as your doctor recommends. Also help relieve your complaints with these natural steps:
