It is hot as hell, which means that your lady parts need a lot of care. All the heat and moisture are the culprits of yeast infection. So how do you prevent the unwanted itch or rash down there during summer? Dr Subrata Das tells you.

  • Start by switching your synthetic underwear to cotton ones. And if you love wearing thongs you might want to consider an alternative as they can cause irritation along your bikini line. Opt for boy shorts instead as they will allow for maximum air flow and minimise the irritation.
  • Avoid wearing skinny jeans and tight shorts as all the heat, moisture and friction and irritate the skin. A good thumb rule to know if your pant is fitting you right is to see if you can put down your hands below the waistband.
  • Who doesn t like to step out of the cold shower smelling fresh? But those chemical laden soaps can be harsh on your delicate part and can dry out the area. Use a mild soap in the sensitive area. When you are on-the-go occasionally clean the area with wipes to keep it free from bacteria and odour.
  • Don t forget the condoms. Not only will it prevent unwanted pregnancy and STDs but it will keep your vagina s pH levels in check and cut down your chances of suffering from yeast infections. Also do not doze off immediately after a heated romp session. Wash your private parts to reduce your chances of an infection.
  • Also, wash your towel regularly. Your towel can breed bacteria and lead to recurring yeast infections.
  • Last and not the least, sleeping naked in summers can be a great way to let your body breathe. You also cannot miss out on these summer skincare tips.

If you get yeasty or mushy scent in your vagina, you need to see your doctor as it could be an indication of a skin condition. Here are things you should never do to your vagina.
