Brief Answer: Itchy perinium is because of fungal infection Detailed Answer: Hello dear, Thanks for your query. I presume you mean perinium, an itchy and red perinium is most likely due to fungal or mixed (Fungal+bacterial) infection. This is the most common cause. You will benefit from keeping the area dry, and applying iodine solution twice a day and also an antibacterial and antifungal combination ointment twice a day for at least 4 weeks. Hope this answers your query, please revert back if you have any doubts. Wishing you speedy recovery. Kind regards.
