If you are using panty liners and struggling with an itchy, burning, or irritated vagina, you may be experiencing vaginal inflammation. You feel like you need to scratch down there all the time, and it may even hurt to have sex. You’re not sure what’s going on, but you know that it’s not normal.
The bad news is that no cream, spray, or oil will help you get rid of vaginal itching permanently. All three will eliminate your vaginal problems in the short term. But in the long run, they will cause you even more issues. To get rid of vaginal itching once and forever, you need to eliminate its cause. The good news is that you can treat your itchy vagina in the comfort of home on your own.
But before we move on, it is important that you understand the cause of vaginal itching.
A vaginal itch is a sensation arising from the irritation of vaginal skin cells. While it is a nuisance, an itch serves as an important sensory and self-protective mechanism. It alerts you to harmful external toxins on your sensitive skin, but can become unbearable if not treated.
When you wear disposable panty liners, its toxic layer touches your sensitive vaginal skin and toxic substances (like furans, dioxins, glyphosates, and others) easily pass on to it. There, they stimulate Pruriceptors — itch-sensing nerve endings, which gradually make you feel itchy. The more you use disposable panty liners, the more toxins pass on to your sensitive skin, the more itchy your vulva become.
But that's not all! For your vagina to stay healthy, vaginal flora should be in balance. Normal vaginal flora is dominated by a type of bacteria called lactobacilli. They are responsible for producing lactic acid and other substances that inhibit the growth of yeast and other harmful organisms. Lactobacilli, due to their ability to produce acid, maintain the appropriate pH level of your vagina. If the pH level rises too high, the lactobacilli bacteria start to die and other (bad) bacteria start multiplying causing flora imbalance.
