☞ Today’s Health = The hot and humid summer weather is a good time for bacteria to grow. During this period, women are more likely to develop vaginitis.

Vaginitis is an inflammatory disease of the vagina in women. It is a common female disease, with more than 1 million women visiting medical institutions every year for vaginitis.

This disease, which occurs frequently in women in their 20s and 30s, requires thorough hygiene management. However, unhygienic lifestyle is not the only cause of vaginitis. The inside of the vagina prevents abnormal bacteria from growing by maintaining the proper acidity. However, the wrong way to wash the vagina, pregnancy, menopause, weakened immunity, etc. can induce alkalizing inside the vagina and increase the risk of vaginitis.

There are many different types of vaginosis, the most common being Candida vaginitis. It is caused by exposure to one of the fungi, Candida. It is characterized by the occurrence of a white vaginal discharge, which may be accompanied by pain and swelling of the vulva.

Alkalization inside the vagina can also lead to bacterial vaginosis. It is characterized by a yellow vaginal discharge and an unpleasant odor.

Vaginitis can also occur through sexual intercourse. Trichomonas vaginitis is a typical example. A large amount of cold may occur, which may make underwear wet, and the vaginal entrance may sting and itchy. Since Trichomonas vaginitis is very contagious, it is recommended that both men and women be treated together.

Vaginitis can be diagnosed relatively simply through vaginal discharge tests. If the cause of vaginitis is identified through an examination, antibiotics appropriate for it are used, and lactic acid bacteria that maintain adequate acidity in the vagina are also considered. Director Seo Eun-ju of Seran Hospital said, “Since vaginitis is highly likely to recur, thorough self-management is necessary along with treatment. “It’s good to wear underwear,” he said.

Since vaginitis is often caused by weakened immunity regardless of hygiene, it is also important not to hide it and to receive active treatment. If left unattended for a long time, there is a risk of chronic vaginitis or the spread of inflammation to the pelvis.
