In today’s age, the stigma around talking about feminine care and hygiene is rapidly fading away and paving the path for feminine hygiene to be openly discussed. Feminine hygiene is no longer taboo and is considered a crucial part of overall women’s health. At its core, feminine hygiene is for feeling and smelling fresh down there. Feminine hygiene isn’t only about keeping odours at bay and you feel comfortable in your own skin, it’s crucial to preventing infections as well.
1. Contact Dermatitis Vaginal pimples are likely caused by contact dermatitis. This is a reaction to something that touches the skin. Contact dermatitis of the genitals may be caused by sensitivity to: – Bubble baths and soaps, especially if they contain fragrances – Feminine wipes, deodorants, lotions, powders, or perfumes – Tampons or sanitary pads, learn how to choose the right sanitary pad here – Spermicides, condoms, lubricants, or sexual arousal stimulants – Over-the-counter topical medications – Laundry detergent and dryer sheets
2. Folliculitis Bumps on the vagina may be a result of infection of the hair follicle due to bacteria. Shaving your pubic hair is one potential cause of folliculitis. As your hair starts growing out of the follicle, it curls back toward the skin, causing irritation. In some cases, the hair grows back into the skin (ingrown hair). The roughness of a razor on sensitive skin can also cause razor burn, bumps, blisters or pimples.
