TIPS TO DEAL WITH SANITARY PAD RASHES DURING PERIODS.
Some itchy bumps are the last thing you want down there after battling with painful period cramps for days. While it’s quite common, it’s very uncomfortable. The good news, however, is that once you have identified the cause of the rash, you can avoid it in future.
If you have found yourself struggling with pad rash during periods, try out these tips next time:
1. Change often
While some brands say that you can stay with one pad for up to eight hours, you may want to do better and change more often. Of course, your flow should direct you on how often you should change your pad. But even if you are not having a heavy flow, you do not want to stay with one pad for so long as it can lead to pad rash.
2. Change brand
Our skin reacts differently to different things and that’s why one person’s skincare product may be poison to your skin. Try shifting to another brand of sanitary towels and see if the rash will still be there.
3. Shift to cotton
If you have tried changing from several brands and still do not see any change, it may be time to go try all-cotton sanitary pads. They are a little bit pricier but are unlikely to cause pad rash since they do not have dyes and are fragrance-free.
