deodorizing genitals

deodorizing genitals

genitals can be a recurring source of odor

genital odor is most often linked to microbe overgrowth

genital skin is very sensitive and often becomes inflamed and uncomfortable when the pH balance is disrupted

for this reason it can be safer in the first instance to check for bacterial infection and / or fungal infection with a medical professional

if present these can usually be treated quickly with a single dose oral antifungal such as fluconazole or antibacterial such as metronidazole

a less common parasitic infection such as trichomoniasis can also cause genital odor and is commonly treated with with a single dose of metronidazole

the deodorization guide here should be used very carefully and sparingly to avoid skin irritation of the very sensitive genital area
