Are You Facing A Zitty Situation In the Lady Area? Here’s How You Can Fix It
Eeeekkkk! There’s a bumpy red dot on your lady area and you can’t help but freak out. Is it a sign of STD? (Umm herpes, is that you?) Why else would pimples suddenly show up at your doorstep unannounced, right?
Fret not ladies, it’s probably just vagne a.k.a. vaginal acne.
Yeap, this type of zit exists and it’s a pretty common matter which can cause some discomfort like burning sensation and itchiness. Although, it may not be necessarily harmful.
In most cases, your vagina might be sensitive to the chemicals from the products you use daily such as bath bomb, shower gel, detergent, feminine wash, pads, tampons or even semen. However, you’ll be surprised to find that vagne could happen due to wearing tight clothing, excessive sweating as well as infection from cut or wound.
On top of that, it could also be the result of inflammation or infection from shaving or waxing your pubic hair. The new hair that grows out of the follicle might curl back towards or into the skin (ingrown hair), hence, causing pimples.
What should I do to get rid of these zits?
Let the bush grow
At least, just until the pimples go away. Even though the thought of letting your pubic hair grow could be horrifying, you should know that shaving down there when it’s conquered by pimples will be excruciatingly painful. Also, try to not to pop em’ zits because this will only lead to nasty infections.
Avoid Wearing Tight Panties
Wearing loose-fitting panties helps your vagina to breathe, which is great because bacterias tend to be more active when it’s moist and dark. The best option is cotton underwear, or if your outfit allows you to, go commando instead!
Know what you’re putting on your body
A healthy vaginal pH is between 3.5 and 4.5, therefore, it is best to use products with the same pH levels to avoid irritating your lady parts. Should there be any pimples popping out down there, try changing your soap, pads or anything else that you have been using.
Moreover, don’t use anything made out of harsh sulfates, glycerin, parabens, phthalates, gluten, soy, and dairy. Try using natural products instead – or better yet, don’t use anything at all because your vajayjay is capable to keep itself clean in so many ways.
Keep your private part clean and dry
Not that kind of “dry” (although in some cases, this might be necessary). Since bacteria tend to grow in a moist environment, it is vital that you keep it clean and dry at all times, including from sweat or after a shower. Trust us, you don’t want to be suffering from a bad vagne all because you decided to be lazy.
Consult a doctor
Should things get a little messy down there and it’s beyond your control, seek help. Not from Google or the internet but from an actual, certified doctor or a gynecologist. Just pay up, girl! Don’t seek simple home solutions by applying facial zit creams to get rid of the pimples because it’s not the same as your those acnes that grow on your face.
