What is your primary intimate-health concern?
Itching and/or Irritation
Itching and/or Irritation
There are well over 70 causes of vaginal itch and irritation, so it’s no wonder so many women have to deal with these issues from time to time. Common causes are regular soaps, some body washes, laundry detergents, your period, tight clothing, damp workout or swimwear, hormonal fluctuations, allergic reaction, sexual activity, and vaginal or vulvar dryness.
All women will experience some degree of vaginal discharge due to the normal rise and fall of hormones. Normal discharge is our body's own way of cleansing itself. If a discharge has an unusually foul, fish-like odor, abnormal color or thick curd-like consistency, you should see your healthcare provider since it could be a sign of something more serious.
Urine leakage can be caused by weakened pelvic muscles or damage to the bladder nerves. It can be a problem during pregnancy, after giving birth, and during the peri and postmenopausal years. Leakage can occur with a laugh, cough or sneeze. Discomfort comes not only from wetness, but embarrassing odor as well. We recommend that you consult with your healthcare provider.
External Dry Intimate Skin
External intimate skin (the skin surrounding the vaginal area) can suffer from dryness just like the rest of the skin on your body. It’s more common than you think. Often daily soaps and body washes can be harsh and dry out delicate intimate skin, making it feel tight, irritated and sometimes painful. Shaving around your bikini area can also cause dryness and irritation. Using a gentle moisturizing intimate wash can help soothe intimate skin, keeping it soft, hydrated and supple.
Internal Vaginal Dryness
Internal vaginal dryness is also a common problem for women. It can be caused by low estrogen, nursing, contraceptives, antihistamines, other medications, and stress. Many women first notice vaginal dryness when intercourse becomes uncomfortable or even painful. You can alleviate dryness during sex or anytime you experience discomfort with a lubricating vaginal moisturizer.
Your vaginal area is really just skin. Sensitive, delicate skin. There are lots of factors that can upset the balance of that skin: pH levels, hormones, sweat, just to name a few. So it makes sense that it requires “skin care.” That's why Vagisil Daily Care products are specially designed to help cleanse, protect and keep your most intimate skin healthy.
A rash around the vaginal area could be from razor burn, bikini waxing or irritation from soap or detergent. Cleansing can aggravate the irritation, especially if the wrong cleanser is used. To avoid further irritation, cleanse with an intimate wash specifically created for intimate skin like Vagisil pH Balance Wash.
Your vagina’s natural defense is a “normal vaginal pH” which is slightly acidic. This keeps harmful bacteria at bay. Many factors can upset the pH of the vaginal area, such as: sex, pregnancy, douching, spermicides, menopause, excess moisture, wetness, shaving, waxing, even regular soaps and body washes. All Vagisil washes are specifically designed to be at the optimal pH level for vaginal health. To help support a healthy pH every day, try Vagisil pH Balance Wash.
Chafing is irritation caused by skin rubbing against skin, tight clothing or sanitary pads. Many women experience chafing during exercise or simply going about their busy day. You can protect the delicate skin of the vaginal area and inner thighs from chafing as part of your daily intimate skin care routine.
There are more sweat glands in the vaginal area than any other area of the body. That’s why vaginal odor is entirely normal and many women experience it. Normal odors are caused by sweat, your period, even what you eat. Daily washing or showering with warm water (not hot) and a wash specifically designed for intimate skin such as Vagisil Odor Block Protection Wash, will help. If you have an unusual or strong odor, this can be a sign of a more serious problem and we recommend that you consult with your healthcare provider.
Burning itch is a common symptom of different vaginal infections, not just yeast infection. Many women assume they have a yeast infection and self-treat with an over-the-counter medicine when they may actually have another kind of infection. While Vagisil Maximum Strength Creme is the strongest anti-itch medicine you can buy to relieve itch fast, our screening kit can let you know if you might have a vaginal infection other than a yeast infection. We always recommend that you consult with your healthcare provider if you are experiencing burning itch.
