Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 26 years old, and I have vaginal itching, anal itching, and also have itching on the sides of the thigh line for the past one month but the itching was mild. For the past two days, the itching is high. Kindly let me know how to get rid of this itching. There are no rashes or ringworms in these areas. Only itching is present. Yesterday, I consulted a doctor and he prescribed Itraconazole 200 mg thrice a day. Can I take it thrice a day or is it over dosage? Please suggest.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

We value the high level of confidence that you have in us.

Please let me know whether you are allergic to any medicine or if you are taking any medicines apart from Itraconazole. I suggest you do the following:

  1. Maintain strict hygiene.
  2. Avoid sexual contact (if any) for a while.
  3. Avoid using certain brands of sanitary napkins.
  4. Wear loose, comfortable cotton clothes and undergarments.
  5. Avoid friction.
  6. Avoid tight clothing.
  7. Avoid using creams, oil, lotion, or powder, and refrain from doing salon treatments like massages.
  8. Tablet Itraconazole 200 mg may be taken twice. Please consult your treating doctor to revise the dosage.
  9. Keep your nails trimmed.
  10. Stay well hydrated.
  11. Keep the area dry.
  12. Sitz bath may be taken unless otherwise if it is contraindicated.

Get yourself physically examined by a gynecologist. Also, please answer the following questions:

  1. When was your last menstrual period?
  2. Do you take any medicines for blood pressure, sugar, thyroid, heart issues, or cholesterol?
  3. How much water do you drink in a day?
  4. Do you have any burning sensation during urination?
  5. Do you have any white discharge?
  6. Do you eat outside food a lot?

A course of deworming may be needed unless otherwise, contraindicated.

I hope this helps. Kindly answer the above questions and revert.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
