Menopause itching is a part of the nearly 40-symptoms of Menopause. Menopause itching can begin with PreMenopause / PeriMenopause as changes in hormone levels are affected by a dropping in estrogen. Once Menopause has taken full effect, Menopause Itching can get out of control unless treated.
Causes of Menopause Itching
Vaginal itching can be a direct result of the thinning of the walls of the vagina and a lack of natural lubrication caused by the drop in estrogen. An increase or overgrowth of candida is another common culprit causing vaginal itching.
Skin itching is also affected by estrogen but with itching of the skin the culprit is usually a decrease in collagen and oils. Medically the terms for itching of the skin are Paresthesia and Pruritus. Pruritus can present itself with the sensation of ants crawling on your skin and a tingling sensation. Paresthesia is not as common as it is an abnormal skin condition also resulting in a sensation that bugs are crawling on or under your skin.
Symptoms of Menopause Itching
• Small red bumps
• White patches of dry skin
• Sensitive and painful areas
• Tingling or prickling sensation
• A bug-crawling sensation
Overcoming Menopause Itching
Regulating how much time that you spend exposed in the sun can reduce itching; using natural moisturizers can also help hydrate your skin. Using less soap or a higher quality of natural moisturizing soap and lowering the water temperature have been proven to prevent the removal of natural body oils.
Eating foods high in omega 3,6,9’s gives your body the essential fatty acids that can keep your skin producing oils and moisturized. Drinking water is another simple way to help your skin retain moisture.
