Always keep your undergarments dry.
It is very important that your undergarments are dry and clean, as damp cloth can be the reason for a lot of vaginal infections. Make sure to clean and dry yourself up after using the loo. And ensure you wear dry and clean undergarments and change them everyday
Wear the correct undergarments
Make sure you give your vagina space to breathe. Cotton is breathable. Making it an ideal fabric selection for underwear. It can down on moisture as it keeps your skin cool and dry. With breathable fabrics like cotton, you have a reduced risk of bacterial growth and infections. On the flip side, fabrics like satin retain moisture. That reduces airflow, creating irritation and friction. And that encourages yeast and bacteria growth, which can lead to infections. You should also change out of sweaty workout clothes and wet swimsuits to help prevent infections.
Practice safe sex
Practicing unsafe sex can increase the risk of many sexually transmitted diseases that are transmitted by genital fluids such as gonorrhoea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis. Using condoms is the simplest way to protect yourself against such transmission.
Don’t use soap or scented products
Soaps and other cosmetic cleansers are laden with harsh chemicals, antiseptics, and perfumes. This can harm the pH balance in the vaginal region causing irritation and growth of unhealthy bacteria.
Your vagina knows how to take care of itself. It self-cleans and naturally produces some discharge that helps get rid of germs and bacteria from your body.
Change your pads/tampons regularly
If sanitary pads are not changed for long durations, they can lead to skin rashes and bad odours. Women with the normal flow should change the pads every 4-6 hours. This applies even on light-flow days. If you're wearing panty liners, change them frequently. However, if you wear them all the time, you may have some irritation
