Feminine Hygiene: How To Prevent Vulvar Irritation?

Itching or irritation in your private parts? It could be Vulvar Irritation. Vulva is the term given to female’s external genital organ. All females have vaginal discharge or secretions which help to keep the vulva and vagina moist and remove bacteria and dead cells. Well, there are many factors which may lead to dryness or irritation of vulva causing further infections.

Identify the problem:

If you are facing vulvar exasperation (irritation), then go back to basics and stop using the products that you use every day. Try to identify the problem causing products and stop using them. If the problem persists then without any further delay, you should consult your Gynaecologist for the specific issue and relative treatment.

Important Things To Keep In Mind

While bathing:

1.Washing is necessary but over washing is not recommended, preferably try to use hands rather than using an external source like clothes, wipes, loofahs etc.

2.Choose to take Shower over bubble bath because bubble bath might decolonise the helpful microflora in the vagina which is a gateway for the harmful bacteria to colonise and cause infections.

While Taking Medicine:

1. Don’t opt for the home remedies, which may exacerbate the situation.

2. Try to avoid sanitary pads, gels, sprays, deodorants etc.

3. Administering OTC medication for yeast infections may also cause the pain or itching. So, staying away from unnecessary medication will be a preventive step.

4.We must also take into consideration on choosing the appropriate antibiotics. Consult your healthcare provider for suitable antibiotics.
