So I found myself sitting in the midst of wonderful Nigerian girls who would stop at nothing to share their experiences in so many issues. However, we got to talk about infections and few of the commonest ways of curing them.
Ladies tend to find themselves caught with different kinds of infections per time. So, yours truly chose to share them with you. Lol. Enjoy!
· Using Salt to cure vagina itch
I bet you have your eyes widely opened. Yeah Salt can effectively cure itching and bacteria due to its antibacterial properties. Wash your vagina with concentrated warm salt water whenever you feel the itching. This will give you great relief instantly and prevent further multiplication of bacteria. Alternately, you can fill half the bathtub with warm water and add half a cup of salt into it. Sit inside the tub in a squatting position. While sitting, open your vaginal walls using your finger so that the saline water goes inside and kills the bacterial action effectively.
· Garlic; to cure smelly vagina and itch
Garlic contains antibacterial as well as antibiotic properties that can help kill bacteria and yeast. It also improves the immune system to fight infections in the body. Take a clove of fresh garlic and peel off the natural white paper shell that covers it, leaving the clove intact. Before you go to sleep in the night, put the clove into the vagina. In the morning, remove the garlic clove and throw it in the toilet. The garlic often causes the vagina to have a watery discharge. One night’s treatment might be enough to kill the infection depending on the level, or it might have to be repeated the next night if the itching is serious. Continue one or two days until all itchiness is gone. The reason why the treatment is done at bedtime is that there is a connection between the mouth and the vagina. The moment the garlic is placed in the vagina, the taste of the garlic travels up to the mouth. Some ladies find the strong flavor of garlic annoying during the day, so the treatment is best recommended for the night time.
· Taking lots of water to stay healthy “down there”
water has been known to cure lots of diseases and vaginal issues/infections can be reduced with a sufficient intake of clean water daily.
· Allow your body to breathe
So throw away the notion of wearing so many clothes at bed time. It is just advisable to wear loosely fitted nighties and that without panties too. This will, at least, allow some good air find its way around that arena.
So, these are the few gossips I had with my “girlfriends”. Let’s hear yours, what do you know about infections and simple ways to cure them? xoxo
