According to experts, awfully tight pants can cause sweat to pool down there, and lead to skin friction. This creates a perfect breeding spot for bacteria and fungus, which may lead to a number of unhygienic conditions such as:
Jock itch: This is an itchy, red fungal rash that usually begins in the groin, and if left untreated, spreads to thighs, anus and buttocks.
Yeast infection: This kind of infection is caused due to overgrowth of Candida, a microscopic fungus that can cause a burning rash and itching in your intimate area, as well as vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese.
Urinary tract infection (UTI): UTI occurs due to bacteria, and its symptoms include pain while urinating, blood in the urine, increased frequency of urination, incontinence etc.
Vulvodynia: As the name suggests, this disorder impacts the vulva, the external genital organs of a female, and is characterized by pain, burning, itching, stinging or throbbing in the intimate area. If you experience any of these symptoms while wearing tight denims, or while having sex or urinating, see a doctor as soon as possible.
Synthetic or tight clothing, such as tight denims, restricts air circulation through your vulva and groin area, thereby trapping moisture and heat down there. This leads to friction, heat and pressure in your pubic region, all of which create an ideal environment for microbes to thrive down there. If you feel discomfort in your intimate area while wearing tight denims, it is most likely due to the irritation its fabric is causing by rubbing against your sensitive skin. Friction causes redness, stinging, itching and swelling in the region.
Here are a few things you can do to keep your intimate area as hygienic as possible:
- Avoid wearing tight denims every day.
- Take them off as soon as you reach home, and wear something loose and breathable.
- Wear underwear made of cotton and other breathable fabric only.
- Do not wear synthetic fabrics that do not allow air circulation.
- Avoid using chemical-based soaps and shampoos for your intimate areas, which can cause dryness, pH imbalance, itching, burning or skin darkening. Use products exclusively formulated for such sensitive areas such as everteen® Natural Intimate Wash. Use at least once every day, and more frequently during menstruation.
- Always wash your intimate area before and after having sex.
- We recommend carrying a few individually-wrapped everteen® natural intimate hygiene wipes in your handbag at all times. These are especially very helpful when using public toilets at offices, malls, metro stations or cinema halls.
- Skip wear underwear while sleeping at night. This allows proper air circulation through your intimate region for at least 8 hours every day and lets it recuperate from the daily stress.
