How to Keep Your Vagina Away From Infections
Well, it’s pretty obvious that infections happen when the organ isn’t cleaned appropriately, but in the case of Vagina, things are different.

Just a little lukewarm water is enough to clean it. Putting all the heavy stuff can disturb the natural pH of your Vagina and can cause irritation and inflammation.
Let your Coochie breathe
Infections usually thrive in the warmest and most moist parts of the body. And the stuff we tend to wear like jeans, underwear, pants, tights, and all the stuff that makes the environment around Vagina even more warm and moist. It increases the chances of the Vagina growing yeast. So, all you need to do is choose something that keeps airflow easy. Wear cotton underwear. Cotton is made up of lightly woven fibers together, so there’s some space for air to exchange and circulation to be maintained. So, wearing cotton panties can help you to prevent infections.
