The Right Way To Clean The Genitals?
My groin has a rash due to damp, groin is always alkaline and smelly. Pain when rubbed and also have lumps. I am 18. I also want to ask how to clean genitals properly
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The area around the genitals and vagina is a very sensitive area, so it is not recommended to clean or soak the area around the genitals and vagina with hard soap, soap containing fragrance, using deodorant or perfume in the area around the genitals, or using herbs and ingredients certain traditional in this genital area. You can simply clean your genital area with warm water while bathing, or you can also use soft, non-scented soap to clean the area outside the vagina (it should not be inserted in the vagina). You also need to clean the area of your labia fold by opening your labia majora and cleaning the area of the labia majora fold with water and mild soap.
Regarding the rash in your groin, you should check firsthand, whether the rash is caused by a bacterial infection in the skin area (such as folliculitis), fungal infections, dermatitis (dermatitis itself has various types, can contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, dermatitis intertriginous, seborrheic dermatitis, etc.), can also be caused by other skin diseases such as psoriasis. The therapy for each of these conditions can vary, so you should first check with a dermatologist for evaluation and management of the rash in your groin.
The following are some things you can do at this time:
Make sure you always clean your groin area thoroughly when you take a shower
Dry the groin area (after you take a shower, toilet, or bowel) before you use underwear
Don't use scented soap, perfume, deodorant, or certain chemicals or herbs to cleanse your genital area
Wash your underwear with only mild detergent (for example, detergent for washing baby clothes), and do not use softener or deodorizer to wash your underwear.
Don't exchange panties or towels with other people
Use underwear that is soft and absorbs sweat, you should choose underwear that is not too tight in the groin area
If the underwear is wet from sweat, immediately replace the underwear with a new one
Don't use pants that are too tight or too layered
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
