Further Tips to prevent complaints in the genital area such as vaginal infections or vaginal dryness:
Always shave in the direction of the hair. Shaving the private parts can cause redness, itching, and burning sensation. Proper skin care and regular replacement of the blade used can help prevent irritation.
Hygiene and the Use of Soap
The right hygiene measures help prevent vaginal discomfort. Less is often more.
Instead of using soap, which can damage the skin's protective layer and cause irritation, it is better to use only lukewarm water. This also means that the sensitive vaginal flora is not destroyed.
Tampons and Sanitary Towels
Sanitary towels and tampons should be changed every 3 to 4 hours to avoid irritation from prolonged contact with menstrual blood. The same goes for panty liners.
Avoid wearing tight clothing such as skinny jeans, leggings or tight-fitting shorts for long periods of time. Especially when these garments are made of synthetic fibers, they create friction, heat and air congestion in the genital area. And the following applies to your underwear: Use natural materials such as cotton. Always change your wet swimsuit after swimming.
Use toilet paper front to back to avoid transferring bacteria from the intestines.
