Have hand sanitizers
Hand sanitizers are a blessing; they clean your hands effectively like soap and water. Make sure you have one in your bag or car; you may just be in a situation where you will find it very useful.
Ensure your home or resident toilets are washed and cleaned regularly, preferably daily. This helps to keep germs away.
You should carry tissue paper in your bag, you never can tell when you would need it.
How to clean-up
After doing a major job is it is better to clean from front to back. This means you clean starting from the direction of your vagina down and towards your anus. This helps to prevent particles of feces from getting into your urethra i.e. the urinary duct and vagina. This will help you reduce the risk of getting an infection. Unlike if you clean from back to front i.e. from your anus towards the urethra and vagina.
Visit the doctor
In case of any vaginal infection or illness visit a doctor or gynecologist. Although common infections like candidiasis are not malignant, it is still better to visit a doctor particularly if that is the first occurrence so that the right diagnosis can be performed and also to avoid self-medication.
