6 underwear mistakes that can hurt your health
Have unexplained itching in an uncomfortable place? Even if you don’t consider yourself to have sensitive skin, your vaginal area may disagree.“Another common irritation is a form of contact dermatitis,” says Dr. Moore. “The No. 1 cause of that is your laundry detergent. The tissues that your panties come in to contact with are a lot more sensitive than your elbows.”She also identifies dryer sheets as irritation culprits. “Many brands have a very high concentration of perfumes in them,” she continues. “I don’t know why we need our vaginas to smell like a garden, but I recommend that women use hypoallergenic cleaning products as much as possible.” Dr. Dardik concurs, the milder the better.
