I have itching in my genitals. I thought it maybe vaginal problems (masalah keputihan) but it seem the mucus is quite thick . I am afraid if i have vagina’s problem than can effect my health and social life

I have itching in my genitals and my genitals seem to be swollen (not as usual / not normal). Also, there was white mucus coming out of my genitals. I also found in my genitals there was a fairly thick white mucus (like a wet tissue) and it is alot. When i try to reached inside, i found alot of mucus (like a tissue that hve been wet)inside. What is it? Also, do i need doc’s treatment?

Hello and good evening. Thank you for your inquiries.

We truly understand your concerns regarding the itching and swelling around your genitals and whitish thick mucus discharge that you have been experiencing recently. For your information, genital swelling and itching might be caused by certain skin conditions such as Allergic dermatitis or Eczema. However in your case, it might be due to certain problems such as:

  • Sexual transmitted infections such as Syfilis, Bacterial vaginosis, or HIV infection.
  • May be due to HPV infection, also known as genital warts.
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vaginitis due to certain infections
  • Formation of Bartholin’s cyst, A cyst formation of a secretion gland called Bartholin gland, which is located near the vulva and may be due to certain bacterial infections
  • Yeast infection such as Candidiasis
  • Injury of the vulva and vagina which can cause inflammation, due to lack of mucus secretion during sex.

Get into relationships without the infection.

Usually, whitish discharge which may or may not be purulent are due to STI infections.

  • Lower abdominal pain or cramping
  • Period irregularity
