Hi doctor,

Recently, I have started running long distances. I noticed breakouts in my vagina. Please assure me whether this is just from sweat or anything else.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You are quite close. They are not due to sweat, but due to friction between your clothes and the growth studs of your vaginal hair.
  • Small hair growths and follicles get caught between the threads of the fabric and pulled causing these eruptions.
  • Wearing loose and skin friendly material like cotton will do the trick. Also, keep the area clean and dry.

Preventive measures:

Loose well aerated clothes.

Regarding follow up:
