The Truth About Genital Acne


Visitors: 945

Although genital acne is no way a *** disease, most people tend to feel ashamed and embarrassed about having such because of their sensitive location. If you feel reluctant about approaching a doctor regarding your problem, read on to learn a few basic tips about genital acne. Then see for yourself if you still need to consult with a physician later on.


Genital acne or folliculitis is experienced by men and women. Race and age don't matter. Although acne laser treatment is technically possible, it's best to use that as a last resort because the genital area is very delicate. Start using natural or medicinal ointments.


Genital acne can be caused by a number of things:

Dirty Underwear - If you still somehow haven't recognized the need to change your underwear regularly, now is the time to do so . Clean underwear goes a long way in alleviating the symptoms of genital acne.

Hygiene - You need to wash your private parts regularly, especially if they're frequently exposed to external elements. For example, if you hang out at the beach often in skimpy clothing, sun, sand and saltwater can wreak havoc on your skin.

Sweat - If you're the type who is very active in sports, accumulated sweat can actually cause genital acne to appear. For a natural remedy, just shower as often as you can until the acne has completely disappeared.

Laundry Soap - It is possible that the laundry soap you're using is causing your body to react negatively, leading to acne breakout on one of the most sensitive parts of your body.


Rather than go for a strictly-acne-removal-treatment, you may wish to use an antibacterial cleanser first and see how it works. Antibacterial cleansers are a safe first choice because they are specially formulated for use on private parts.
