The vagina is the most secretive and sensitive part of the body, which makes it vulnerable to many different conditions. Some things can cause side effects, so you should always be careful with what you use vaginally. While it can be beneficial to try the solutions offered on social media for vaginal problems, blindly trusting them can sometimes cause problems. There are many things that can cause a vaginal infection, and it’s important to know your risk factors.
The vagina needs to be cleaned regularly, so be careful with what you use there. According to Dr Nupur Gupta, MD, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Fortis, Gurugram, there is no harm in cleaning the private parts with ordinary soap. However, if the soap is full of chemicals and has a strong smell, it can inhibit the pH level of the vagina and cause itching, inflammation and rashes around the vagina.
Although we all know that our vagina has its own smell. But her smell continues to change, especially during menstruation. If you think that putting on perfume will get rid of this smell, you are very wrong. Sprays, perfumes, and scented sanitary products are not the best solutions because they are full of chemicals and preservatives that can breed bad bacteria inside your genitals and cause recurrent vaginal infections.
Do you really believe in brushing your vagina? If you do, you should be prepared for serious problems there. According to Dr Aruna Kalra, senior gynecologist and obstetrician at CK Birla Hospital in Gurugram, there is no benefit. On the contrary, it can be really harmful in such sensitive areas. A toothbrush in the vagina can damage the vaginal mucosa and cause infection.
