Is there any correct way to wipe yourself after going to the bathroom? I was told that my way was apparently incorrect and that I can probably get an infection down there.
There are some other things you can do to help avoid infection, like wearing soft, loose-fitting clothes made of non-synthetic materials. Also, wearing cotton underwear helps because it allows the vulva to “breathe.” Absorbent cotton will help to keep the area dry and avoid infections.
Try giving your vulva a break at night by not wearing underwear to bed. Allow the area to access free circulating air whenever possible (and appropriate).
