Pruritis is the medical term for itching. Pruritus is an uncomfortable skin sensation that results in itching or rubbing. Pruritus is commonly referred to as simply, "itching." It may come on suddenly and be short-lived (acute), or it may be long-lasting (chronic).
It should be distinguished from vulvodynia, which refers to chronic burning symptoms.
If the skin becomes damp and soggy, the horny layer becomes soft. Microbes, particularly fungi, can then penetrate into the skin more easily. There are a number of causes of pruritus vulvae.
These include -- A skin condition such as dermatitis, lichen simplex, psoriasis or lichen sclerosus. An infection such as candida (thrush), gardnerella, or trichomoniasis. Irritant contact dermatitis due to scratching, friction, occlusive underwear, soap or inappropriate applications. A skin cancer such as vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia, extramammary Paget's disease or rarely, invasive vulvar cancer.
There are several symptoms of Pruritis. Some of them are included below:
If itching is caused by an allergic reaction to a substance such as a drug, that medication should be discontinued. Treatments often involve medications that reduce inflammation or reverse symptoms of an allergic reaction.
