Background and Aim: Pruritus is usually caused by a primary skin disorder or a systemic disease. Causes of groin pruritus are fungi, eczema, bacterial diseases, neurodermatitis, scabies and many other skin disorders. This study was performed to find the common causes of groin pruritus in female patients that referred to dermatology and gynecology clinics of Yahya-Nejad hospital in Babol.
Methods: This descriptive study was performed on patients with groin pruritus from the begining of winter 2006 until the end of autumn 2007. Other information including name, age, height, weight, previous drug consumption, simultaneous infection in partner or other members of the family, duration of infection, underlying disease and result of examination were recorded in a questionnaire for each patient.
Results: 115 patients were studied. The average age of patients was 41.2 years (15-75 years old). The highest disease frequency was seen in 48 cases (41.7%) in summer. Most cases (33 patients [28.7%]) were between 46-55 years of age. Most of patients (28.7%) had a BMI from 25 to 29.9 (over weigh). The most common causes of groin pruritus in all seasons, ages and BMIs were tinea cruris in 55 cases (47.8%) and seborrheic dermatitis in 29 cases (25.1%).
Conclusion: Considering common causes of groin pruritus, season and patient's weight can be helpful in diagnosis and early treatment of groin pruritus.
