Hi,

Thanks for posting your query

The most common cause of itching in the genitals is due to fungal infection and if proper treatmnt is not taken then it can keep on recurring.The preferred treatment for it is an antifungal ointment containing Cotrimazole.

Sometimes application of one antifungal ointment is not enough and combination of two or more antifungals are needed until the itch disappears and even after that for a week and two application is required.

Some other causes are Diabetes(if you have a family history then possibility of that can be there),co existing Dermatitis,low immunity etc and they are also to be evaluated.

Please see a Dermatologist for examination so that appropriate treatment can be started.Also get your Blood sugars tested.

1)Meanwhile you can apply Calamine for relief from itching.
2)Wear cotton undergarments.
3)Avoid sharing towels,clothes etc.
4)Wash the genitals twice with antibacterial soap and water.

Hope this answers your query.I will be available for follow up query if any.

Hi,

Thanks again

It is available in the name of Calamine itself. One of the product is of Primal Healthcare. You can look for that.
But I would again advise you to get it examined as calamine would be providing only temporary relief.

Hope this helps.

Wishing you Good Health!
