Discomfort in the intimate area - a common phenomenon

Redness, irritation, itching and burning in your intimate area: almost any woman will recognise these symptoms and many are dealing with them constantly. Keeping silent about them due to embarrassment is misplaced. It is best by far to seek information and openly discuss these ‘intimate’ questions, because there is often a way you can prevent or alleviate the symptoms yourself.

There are many causes of vaginal infection and other discomfort in your intimate area and you should discuss any questions and symptoms with your gynaecologist. You will also find plenty of useful information on the subject of “A healthy intimate area” on these pages.
