The young Miss L walked slowly into the gynecology department of the hospital. During the consultation, she told the doctor that it was probably because she was wearing thongs these days, and found that her lower body was getting more and more painful, and she seemed to have some blood in the tide.
The result of the examination was really surprising to the doctor: her vulva was congested, red and swollen, and there were several small ulcers, and the mucous membrane of the vaginal mouth still had a little bleeding. As long as she touched her with a cotton swab, she would feel pain.
Ms. L did several other tests and confirmed that she did not have other gynecological diseases. The doctor prescribed some medicine to her and told her how to use it, and then seriously warned her: “Don’t wear that kind again. I have T-shaped underwear, immediately put on cotton underwear that is slightly looser, and be sure to keep the local area clean and hygienic.”
Now the weather is slowly getting cooler, but people who wear thin skirts and thin pants are very common. In order to be afraid of seeing the traces of underwear outside, many women will wear thongs. Although fashionable, it is actually very detrimental to women’s health. Women’s vulva is mostly delicate and soft mucous membranes, which are easy to rupture and bleeding when rubbed by hard objects. There are one or two narrow ropes on the back of thongs, which will affect the urethral opening, labia and vagina when walking. Friction occurs in the mouth, anus, etc. If it’s just a trauma, it’s okay to be afraid of infection, such as urinary tract infection, vaginitis, local skin ulcer infection, etc., and it will be troublesome.
At the same time, some black-hearted manufacturers use chemical fiber products with poor air permeability as raw materials when sewing thongs, which can easily cause women’s skin allergies.
According to the Beijing Daily, Ms. Zhao has recently experienced redness, pain, and burning in her eyes. She bought eye drops for her own eyes. The symptoms did not alleviate but aggravated, and she became photophobic. She hurried to the hospital for symptoms such as tearing.
After careful examination by the doctor, Ms. Zhao was diagnosed with acute conjunctivitis, which is commonly known as pink eye disease. Asking about the medical history, Ms. Zhao started to develop symptoms after swimming with contact lenses.
Many people need to wear glasses to swim because of myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism. Some people wear contact lenses, but they don’t know that it’s inappropriate to wear contact lenses to swim.
Because contact lenses are absorbent and can absorb some substances, pathogenic microorganisms in water are easily deposited on the lenses. When the bacteria and viruses that cause pinkeye are deposited in large quantities, the eyes with contact lenses are more exposed to the pathogens than those without contact lenses. The threat of microorganisms is much greater.
According to the Jiefang Daily, after the Wenchuan earthquake, ordinary citizens’ awareness of disaster prevention has increased.
According to the mature experience of foreign countries, each household prepares a disaster prevention emergency box is an effective measure to meet the self-rescue needs of survivors and maximize the waiting time for rescue.
In the “Earthquake Preparation Manual” issued by the California Earthquake Administration, the emergency kit lists for individuals and families are different.
list of personal emergency kits: medicines, prescriptions, copies of medical cards, doctor information; first aid kits and first aid manuals; dust cover, non-rubber gloves, spare glasses; strong shoes, maps; emergency cash ; Bottled water, fast foods rich in water and calories; whistle (for help); flashlight (with extra battery and light bulb); personal hygiene products; copies of personal identification documents (driver’s license, ID card).
Family emergency kit list: wrench (turn off gas and water), work gloves and protective glasses; strong plastic bag (for trash, or as a rain cloth); portable radio (with extra battery); flashlight; Drinking water, canned food; charcoal, gas, matches or lighters (for cooking in the wild); cooking utensils (including tools for opening cans); warm clothes and extra socks; blankets and sleeping bags, tents; important documents, such as insurance contracts, etc. .
The sky is getting colder and colder. Keeping warm is undoubtedly the focus of life during this period. Some people think that if you pack yourself tightly and tightly, you will be warm.
But in the eyes of experts, there are many misunderstandings here.
Take footwear as an example. It is said that cold starts from the feet. Many people think that wearing footwear that wraps your feet tightly is the best way to keep warm. Dr. Wang Tiezheng from the Department of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Beijing People’s Hospital told reporters that in fact, too tight footwear and socks can make it easier to freeze feet.
This is because wearing too tight footwear will make the feet and legs feel “not breathable”, blood circulation will slow down, and the heat will not reach the feet effectively. As a result, the risk of frostbite on the feet is also increased.
Some high-top boots will wrap the legs very tightly, which is not conducive to the blood circulation of the legs, so it is not conducive to keeping warm.
heels are also exquisite. Wang Tiezheng especially reminded female friends that it is best not to pick heels that are too high or too thin when buying boots in winter. If the heel is higher than 4 cm, if it is thin, wearing it on the foot will put a lot of force on the sole of the foot. It will hinder the blood circulation of the sole of the foot, and the sole of the foot is the farthest part from the heart, so it is easy to freeze. Therefore, it is best to choose winter boots with a thicker heel and a height of less than 4 cm.
is tightly wrapped in addition to the legs and feet, as well as the neck. Experts believe that it is important to keep your neck warm, but it is also important to have a good sense of measure. There is a sweater with a very tall and thick collar that can even pile up several layers on the neck. Wang Tiezheng advises everyone not to wear it because the neck is too tight. Although it is windproof, it will compress the carotid sinus. Obstructing the blood supply to the brain can easily cause dizziness and nausea.
In addition to the feet and neck, another important point to keep warm in winter is the head. There is a view that you should freeze your head and warm your feet in winter. Wang Tiezheng reminded that most of the human body’s heat is emitted from the head, so people who are afraid of cold should not resist it, especially the elderly and children. Remember to wear them when you go out. hat. When the wind is strong, you can choose a thick hat to block the wind, such as a leather hat.
Body-sculpting thermal underwear satisfies people’s pursuit of beautiful appearance, but it has always been controversial. Most of the medical experts hold a strong negative attitude towards this kind of thermal underwear.
Body-sculpting thermal underwear is not only very tight, causing poor blood circulation, but also may cause constipation.
Ms. Fang came to the Endocrinology Department of Harrison International Peace Hospital affiliated to Hebei Medical University due to severe constipation. According to Ms. Lu’s recollection, after buying two sets of body-sculpting thermal underwear in a shopping mall, she felt unwell after wearing them. Constipation began to appear on the third day. After a systematic examination by Professor Wang Xiuqian, the chief physician of the Department of Endocrinology, he concluded that it was caused by the body-sculpting thermal underwear worn by Ms. Lu.
Professor Wang Xiuqian introduced that because the body-sculpting thermal underwear tightly wraps the abdomen, the kidney, spleen, liver, stomach, intestines and other organs in the abdominal cavity are compressed, causing the internal organs and the nervous system to be in a state of tension for a long time, resulting in continuous gastrointestinal function Decrease, weaken the function of the digestive system, and eventually cause constipation.
In addition, slimming underwear can easily cause some diseases, such as vulvitis; it can also cause hypoxia, causing breast swelling and pain.
Especially some patients with habitual constipation, let alone put on thermal underwear for the pursuit of a beautiful body shape.
One is the nervous system tension caused by tightness, and the other is the rapid evaporation of water caused by warmth. Both of these conditions are the direct cause of constipation.
The compact sanitary pad is easy to use and is very popular among women. Some people even use it every day except during menstruation, and most users don’t feel like changing the pad when using it. Sanitary napkins are so diligent.
usually only use one per day for more than 12 hours. The doctor said that this actually has a big hidden danger, but different people can treat it differently.
Western medicine: sanitary pads are not suitable for long-term use
There should be no problem with healthy women using sanitary pads every day, but there are also hidden dangers: most of the pads have a layer of plastic at the bottom, which has poor air permeability, which can easily cause moisture and sweat in the genitals, which can cause pathogenic bacteria to grow. Long-term non-replacement of sanitary pads will greatly increase local humidity and temperature, especially in hot flash climates, which not only creates suitable conditions for the growth of bacteria and fungi, but also destroys the pH of the vagina and reduces The local protective barrier function can cause vaginitis, genital itching and so on. In addition, the friction of the sanitary pad can easily cause damage to the local skin or hair follicles, and diseases such as vulvar folliculitis. Therefore, the sanitary pad should not be used for a long time. The idea that the use of the pad does not need to clean the part every day is even wrong.
Some women use pads mainly to cope with excessive secretions and peculiar smell of lower body. He suggested that if there are people with similar conditions, they may have some diseases in their bodies. At this time, they should go to the hospital for examination and treatment.
Western medical advice:
1. In summer, people are prone to sweating. Try not to use sanitary pads when unnecessary.
2, some sanitary pads with additives or fragrances, for some people, may increase the probability of allergies.
3. When using sanitary pads, you should also pay attention to timely replacement, so as not to affect the acid-base environment adjustment of the female lower body.
Chinese medicine advice:
1, sanitary pads should be based on work
Replacement according to environment, nature, season, physical condition: When the secretion is small, basically one a day is enough; it should be replaced in time when the weather is hot or when work is stressful and sweating frequently. In short, it is good that women’s vulva can be kept clean, dry and breathable for a long time.
The cleanliness of menstrual products is particularly important. Because the pelvic cavity, uterus, cervix, vagina, and external environment are all connected, this structure makes the female reproductive system particularly vulnerable to external pathogens.
Especially during menstruation, the resistance of the reproductive organs decreases, making them more fragile than usual. If you use substandard sanitary napkins, you are particularly prone to infection.
1: Replacement, should be more diligent.
”The menstrual blood is rich in nutrients, which can easily become the’medium’ for the proliferation of bacteria. Therefore, sanitary napkins must be replaced diligently.”
There are two wrong practices:
First, I used a sanitary napkin with strong absorption and good protection function, I thought it would be ok to use the same sanitary napkin for a long time;
Second, I forget to replace it when the menstrual blood volume is low.
There is a survey: Japanese women change 6 times a day during menstruation on average, while Chinese women change 3 times. For the same Asian race, there should not be much difference in physique. However, due to the high proportion of Chinese women using intrauterine contraceptive rings, the overall menstrual flow should be greater.
Remember when using sanitary napkins:
1, change every two hours;
2, use medication sanitary napkins with caution to prevent allergies;
3. Be sure to wash your hands before removing the sanitary napkins;
4. Put sanitary napkins in the bathroom. Most of the restrooms in our country are dark guards, there is no sunlight all day long, and they are so humid that it is easy to breed mold and contaminate sanitary napkins.
2: Use medication sanitary napkins with caution, especially women with allergies.
The raw materials of sanitary napkins from regular manufacturers have undergone special safety testing and have been used for many years. If an allergy occurs, it is usually due to our physique-it is the same reason that someone who eats shrimp or crab will be allergic.
“Sanitary napkin allergy” is not a trivial matter
The only way to prevent allergies is to avoid allergens, so once you feel irritation, itching, or discomfort, stop using this sanitary napkin immediately. It is best to find out the allergic ingredients (most common is the sanitary napkin Fragrance), do not use sanitary napkins with the same ingredients.
Experts suggest: “People with sensitive skin should use less dry mesh surface and more cotton mesh surface. Dry mesh surface absorbs quickly, but cotton mesh surface is softer and more comfortable and less irritating to the skin.” In addition, in summer Allergies are more likely to occur. This is because moisture accumulates locally, so you should pay more attention to frequent replacement. “
3: Sanitary napkins are best changed every two hours
Ms. Zhang has always used tampons, mainly because she has a cleanliness addict and can’t stand the peculiar smell of menstrual blood on the sanitary napkins. In fact, there is no peculiar smell when the menstrual blood flows out, but when it comes into contact with the air, an oxidation reaction occurs. Several chemicals are mixed together to produce the smell.
The way to overcome it is of course to choose products with good air permeability and replace them frequently. Dr. Ding Hui also suggested that it is not advisable to eat high-fat and high-calorie foods during menstruation. Instead, fruits, vegetables, and beans should be used. A light diet will refresh the body.
4: Keep a distance from the sanitary pad
Two days before and after menstruation, sanitary pads are a convenient, practical and clean choice for travel, business trips and other inconvenient bathing situations. Dr. Dante believes: “Sanitary pads should not be used from time to time.”
”The skin of the genitals is similar to the skin of the lips. In medicine, if the lips are damaged, a skilled plastic surgeon can transplant the skin of the genitals for reconstruction. For both skins, the ideal environment is-not too much Dry, not too moist. Just imagine, our care for the lips, do we often wrap it up?”
”The delicate skin needs a very breathable environment. If it is closed too tightly and moisture accumulates, it is easy to breed bacteria and cause various health problems. The most ideal product is high-woven cotton underwear, which is changed and washed every day; if If you use sanitary pads, don’t forget to choose products with good air permeability.”
specially warned: “If there are more vaginal discharges, yellowish or bloody, and peculiar smell, it may be due to vaginal inflammation and other diseases. At this time, the best way is not to use sanitary pads, but to go to the gynecology department as soon as possible. See a doctor.”
5: Disinfection and bleaching
Sanitary napkins are not completely sterile, because it is difficult and unnecessary: menstrual blood contains many microorganisms. According to a study, every gram of menstrual blood contains 108-9 microorganisms, but generally speaking , There is no harm to the human body. Therefore, many brands of sanitary napkins are not specifically disinfected, as long as they meet the national requirements: no pathogenic bacteria, and the number of microorganisms is within a certain range, it will not harm our health.
There are also some products on the market that are sterilized. It should be noted that most of the disinfection is through a chemical gas-ethylene oxide, which must be stored for a period of time afterwards before it can be put on the market. Otherwise, the residual ethylene oxide may cause harm to the human body. The state has special regulations on this.
Has the whiteness of sanitary napkins “bleached” out? This is not necessarily true. Some sanitary napkins, the raw material itself has a very white color, no need to bleach; there are also sanitary napkins that use fluorescent whitening agent-but we don’t need to smell the fluorescent whitening agent to change the color, there are thousands of them in the world. There are several kinds of fluorescent brighteners, several of which are suspected of being harmful to human health, but they are not used in the paper industry; in other words, there is no evidence that the fluorescent brighteners currently used in papermaking are harmful.
