My feminine comfort
Summer is a favourable time for feminine discomforts. Heat, humidity, perspiration, swimming and the beach… all these factors combine to promote intimate discomfort!
Urinary tract flora and vaginal flora, a delicate balance
Vaginal flora and urinary tract flora are made up of protective bacteria which line the bladder and vagina. These microbiota, dominated by the presence of lactobacilli, form a protective barrier against attack (bacteria, viruses, mycosis).
In summer, the flora which is sensitive to change can become weaker. Heat, bathing and perspiration can disturb the stability of this specific microbiota.
The protective bacteria in the flora may then become scarce, threatening the fragile equilibrium of your intimate area.
Discomfort may make itself felt: itching, burning, irritation and urinary discomfort…
