Hygienic education of girls as future mothers
At birth, the sex organs girls are still very “young”, but need close care. At an early age that caring for yourself should take mom. How she will take care of the genitals of their baby depends on whether her “baby” in turn to become a mother.
Babies skin is very delicate. The epidermis is vulnerable and any infection can create an inflammatory process. The same can be said about the lack of hygiene, especially hygiene genitals. Girls ‘ genitals are vulnerable not only externally but also internally. The mucosa of the genital organs in infants, which usually is designed to protect against the ingress of infection is still poorly developed.
In the first days after birth the girls can watch spotting. This is a normal process, as the girl left the mother’s hormones, which are displayed in this way. So panic should not be. Allocation pass in a few days. It is necessary, every two hours to change diapers and to observe the rules of hygiene.
The procedure of cleaning
Not in any case not to wash genitals girls in the bath. It is better to wash away child running with boiled water. You can use a moist cotton swabs for cleaning. Water the procedure should be performed after each diaper change. During caving mother should hold his hand from the pubis to the coccyx, in that direction. Otherwise the remnants of feces can get on the labia, and start the inflammation.
In the first year of life is better not to use cosmetic products to wash the genitals and also better not to use potassium permanganate and other means. They dry the skin and destroy the weak barrier function of the skin, which managed to appear. After a year you can use a special liquid soap for intimate hygiene of girls and only in case of contact with faeces on the skin. Soap to clean only the surface of the genital organs, that is, large lips. Soapy material must not get into the sex gap.
Dry the skin after the procedure of cleaning should be a separate towel that belongs only to the girl. In addition to this, it should have its own sponge and soap. After this it is necessary to lubricate the external part of the genitals of baby cream.
Underwear should be made only from natural materials. For example, cotton or linen. Synthetic materials do not allow the skin to breathe. In addition, synthetic fibers are not able to absorb secretions that occur in girls, as a result, they accumulate and RUB the skin, causing inflammation.
The baby clothes should always be free: not to steal the genital area, not constrain movement. It is forbidden to wash clothes and linen of the child along with things adults.
Many mothers start to panic when you see the girl appear leucorrhea. Although her menses have not started. Be prepared that in the period from three to four first months of life, from seven to nine and from thirteen to fourteen years of a child on the labia will form a white film. It speaks nothing about the disease, and that the sex organs are developing and maturing. Smegma is the result of work of sebaceous glands of the external genitalia. To remove white discharge should swab dipped in boiled olive oil or boiled in water. So you can act when the child is small. In a more adult, mom can tell little about these secretions and to teach the child to care for genitals.
All of these methods, namely the hygiene of the genital area, we try to “escape” from many diseases. But mostly from vulvovaginitis. This inflammation of the girl’s genitals, which is localized on the outer part of the genitals. Most often from candidiasis suffer the little girls under ten years of age.
