Itching can be incredibly frustrating - especially when it happens in your vagina.

Vaginal itching can be caused by as simple as pubic hair growth, or your red day products—but in other cases, it can be a symptom of a more serious issue.

Here is a list of the usual suspects when it comes to vaginal itching, what they are and what you can do to stop the itch:

Bacterial Vaginosis 

This is the most common reason for vaginal itching. Caused by an imbalance in healthy bacteria and a change in vaginal pH, this manifests through more watery discharge accompanied with unpleasant odor.

What you can do:

  • Wash regularly. Ensure you keep your vagina clean with the right antiseptic feminine wash, like GynePro, which kills bacteria 2X better than other antiseptic feminine washes.
  • Ask your OB-Gynecologist on what irritants you should avoid, and prescription medicine if the itchiness intensifies. 
  • Avoid intercourse to avoid transfer of bacteria.

Vulva or Irritant Dermatitis 

Contact dermatitis of the vulva is a skin condition that is caused by exposure to allergens and irritants that produce vulvar and/or vaginal itching and burning when there is no infection.
What you can do:

  • Remove the irritant and avoid future contact immediately.
  • Wash regulary with GynePro.
  • Visit your OB-Gynecologist. Apply steroid ointment if prescribed. This will decrease redness, swelling, itching and burning. 

Red Day Infection

Since the vagina is at its most vulnerable during menstruation, itching will most likely happen due to the disruption in the vaginal flora. The vaginal area becomes damp and moist more than the usual, making the area more prone to the overgrowth of bacteria. 

What you can do:

  • Change your sanitary pad every six hours or earlier when needed. For tampons, max usage is only up to 2 hours.
  • Wash regularly. It is important to wash off the dried up blood to avoid bacteria build up. Ensure you use the right antiseptic feminine wash, like GynePro, to kill the bacteria that's causing the infection. If you cannot wash, use feminine wipes or tissue to wipe yourself before changing your pad or tampon.
  • Visit your OB-Gynecologist.

The vagina is more susceptible to bacteria during red days, ensure you are at the top of your menstrual hygiene to avoid more serious vaginal issues. Take charge of what happens in your body, especially your vagina. By choosing GynePro the powerful antiseptic feminine wash, you ensure you target bacteria especially on red days.
