Women often rely on sanitary napkins to control menstrual blood flow during their periods. Although pads are extremely effective, their use can sometimes cause rashes to appear in the vaginal area. Because these pads contain chemicals, synthetic materials, and perfume, they can irritate inner thighs and other sensitive areas.
Menstrual rashes are usually caused by irritants in your sanitary napkin after they come into contact with the vulva. Pads are made up of multiple layers of different materials, including the backing, absorbent core, topsheet, adhesive, and fragrances. Aside from irritants, chafing and moisture from wearing a pad can also cause menstrual rashes. So, read on to find some natural remedies to cure period rashes at home.
