Q: Doc, I need help. Can I become affected because every time when I urinate, I use tissue?
A: Thanks for writing in.
Please clean up after you have urinated. If you don’t, then the urine and other secretions accumulate on your panties and make the area nice, warm and moist and a wonderful culture medium for micro-organisms to thrive.
Now, be sure not to wipe too ‘hard’ or ‘vigorously’. Y’all know that the skin down there is delicate and can irritate the skin there leading to inflammation and itching. Infections are likely to follow. So, or two wipes should be good, if you emptied out completely. Another option is to use wet toilet tissue.
Have a good night, everyone 😀
