Vulvar Hygiene - Advice & Tips for Vulvar Skin Care, Vulvar Hygiene

Vulvar hygiene

Many health care professionals consider the vulvar tissue as an extension of the skin. The vulvar tissues are often seen as the most sensitive and delicate part of the female genitals.  Vulvar care and hygiene is important to maintain overall good vulvar health. Good vulvar hygiene may help minimize symptoms such as itchiness, redness or even burning. Even if you are not experiencing any vulvar discomfort or pain, the way you take care of the vulva on a day-to-day basis is important.

Conditions like menopause, cancer treatments or vulvar and vaginal infections can irritate the vulvar tissues. Understanding the concepts of vulvar skin care and an awareness of how to perform a detailed vulvar self-examination will help the woman better understand her own body. She will be aware of any changes that may take place and any problems that may require medical attention.

Leading gynecologists recommend NEOGYN® as part of a daily regimen for intimate vulvar skincare. NEOGYN® Vulvar Soothing Cream is a cosmetic product and not a medication. It helps sooth and restore the vulvar tissue. NEOGYN® is gentle and is free of parabens and propylene glycol, frequently found in feminine care products, which may cause irritation.
