Hello,

Since I promised that this blog will include health tips, I’ll be talking about the woman and her health particularly the “vulva and vagina” and I hope every lady understand what that means???

Many women experience uncomfortable vaginal infections (vaginitis) at one time or another. The area around the entrance to the vagina is the vulva, and both can be irritated. Steps can be taken to relieve and prevent discomfort and infections.

To clean the Vagina and the vulvar;

  1. Use only warm water to wash the vulvar (no soap or disinfectant pls). Dry thoroughly with towel or a dryer(set on cool).
  2. The vagina cleanses itself naturally in form of vaginal discharges. Avoid using douches unless it’s been prescribed by your physician. Because these products can upset the natural balance of the normal flora (microorganisms) in the vagina.
  3. Avoid washing with soap most especially antispetics
  4. Wear only 100% cotton underwear. Avoid wearing nylon, acetate or other man-made fibers
  5. Use mild soap for washing underclothes. Do not use detergents or fabric softeners.
  6. Use soft toilet tissue (white only) on the vulva
  7. Do not use deodorant tampons, do not leave tampons in for a long period, do not leave tampons in the vagina all night. ( change sanitary pad frequently)
  8. Avoid wearing thongs ( G-strings).
  9. Avoid wearing nylon pantyhose or panty girdles. Because they trap heat and moisture, providing an ideal breeding environment for microbes to grow.
  10. Avoid feminine hygiene products which can irritate the vulva e.g spray,oils, deodorants,greases, powder etc .                                       Yours faithfully,                         Adenike.

I am The Sent Nurse,My real name is Adenike Oladmeji. I refer to myself as “the sent nurse” because I strongly believe I have an assignment not just as a regular nurse but to care for people in their lowest state beyond the physical needs. Also most of my patients fondly call me "the sent nurse"because of the way I have cared for them. The peculiarity of my profession for me is that it has moved beyond being just a nurse that takes care of the body, but one that takes care of the soul/mind and spirit of a human being. I care for the threefold man – the body, the soul/mind and the spirit. I am a very proud and enthusiastic registered nurse, and I currently practice with Roding Healthcare in Lagos, Nigeria. Added to my skill and expertise in taking care of your soul / mind, I am also a certified emotional intelligence, health/wellness and life coach. To further carry my message and passion for both my calling/profession and the three-fold man, I own a blog (www.thesentnurse.com) that focuses on faith and health related topics and discussions. I also speak at events, conferences and seminars, both Nationwide and Internationally. As an entrepreneur, I manage the operations of Ewaade beauty store (@ewaadebeautystore) , a beauty store that operates majorly via social media, providing quality cosmetics and beauty products to every female of all levels. At Ewaade beauty store, enhancing your true beauty is our goal because we believe there is no flaw in you (you are altogether beautiful). We provide you a balance of the best quality and cheapest prices.
