Stop Sleeping With Your Pants - Microbiologist Warns Women

 

A clinical microbiologist, Dr. Tony Mbume, on Sunday advised females not to sleep with their panties on, so as to keep the honeypot area dry throughout the night.
He also urged women to stop wearing tight jeans, synthetic panties and leggings, to prevent honeypotl infections.

According him, most Nigerian females wear synthetic pants, leggings and tight jeans in the name of fashion, without considering the health implications.

Mbume, who works with CIAGIN Medical Laboratory, Oke-Afa, Isolo, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that synthetic underwear cause the honeypot to ‘overheat’, which could disrupt its ecosystem.

He said that underwear made of latex, nylon or polyester and synthetic materials could trap moisture and warmth, making the honeypot vulnerable to infections.

“Synthetic panties can cause the honeypot area to overheat and this can sometimes cause burning sores, itching or irritate the sensitive skin, as well as causing blisters.

“The friction caused by walking in tight pants and jeans can irritate the skin, resulting in the formation of blisters,’’ he said.

Mbume said honeypotl burning and itching are usually accompanied by discharge and bad odour.

He further said that such infections could be dangerous if left untreated, as it might lead to infertility due to damage of the reproductive organs.

The microbiologist, however, recommended cotton underwear, to ventilate the honeypot and eliminate infections, adding that wearing cotton underwear helps to keep the honeypot free of excessive moisture and allows the area to breathe.

“Use cotton menstrual pads too. Cotton absorbs excess moisture and removes buildup heat from the area. It is the only material that can become stronger when wet and is easily sterilised after use.

“Avoid sleeping with pants at night, to keep the honeypot area dry throughout the night,’’ he said.

Mbume said that the honeypot should be protected from any form of diseases.
