I want to ask why, when I’m menstruating, I definitely feel itchy, thanks, doc

1 Answer:

Hi Zeptiana,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Blood that comes out and accumulates around the intimate area during menstruation can create excess moisture around the vagina. This condition can certainly trigger itching which is quite annoying. This itching can be more severe in the following conditions:

Intimate organ hygiene is not good
Use of sanitary napkins that contain irritating or allergenic substances
The use of feminine fragrance soap
Xerosis (dry skin)
Having certain problems with intimate organs, for example:

Infections, such as folliculitis, tinea cruris, scabies, genital lice
Neurodermatitis
Seborrheic dermatitis
Drug eruption
psoriasis
Like panus, and so on

Having a history of allergies and excessive stress and anxiety can also exacerbate this itching.


Therefore, you should relieve your complaints by using the right sanitary napkins, namely by:

Choose sanitary napkins that are fragrance-free
Change pads whenever you feel full, or at least every 4-5 hours
Choose the appropriate size pads (not too small, or too big)
Rinse your sex organs before and after changing sanitary napkins

In addition, bathe diligently, shave pubic hair regularly, and avoid excessive stress so that itching can be reduced.


If the complaint does not improve after undergoing the tips above, you should immediately check your complaint to a gynecologist, okay?
