Menstruation is a natural factor that occurs in the life of all women. When it occurs for the first time, the transition from a girl to a woman is marked. But, even being something so natural generates many discomforts and concerns throughout life and one of those discomforts is the allergy to absorbent.
Dry mesh absorbent
Which girl has never caught herself choosing from the thousands of options and models of pads to prepare for when she wears them? Even we women are confused by the multitude of models, brands and options when we go shopping. But what is the best model? Which should we choose? And that answer will give you your own body and the way it will react when using it.
That thin model that your friend wears, which is almost imperceptible in the tightest clothes, may not offer the same security for you. That other model that has such a delicious fragrance that “softens” the natural odors of menstruation that was indicated by the whole circle of friends, may not work for you. Do you know why? Our bodies are different and react differently . And when using it on the first day, you already feel that something is wrong !! Allergy to absorbent? Yes, few women know this until they get through the problem!
The absorbent is the method most used by women and the variety of materials and options in which they are manufactured can raise doubts at the time of purchase. The allergy to an absorbent also called contact dermatitis occurs due to the direct contact of the skin with the causative material , which is not always discovered early on. Some women may confuse the symptoms of an allergy with an absorbent because the menstrual flow is intense, the exchange of the soap that washes their clothes or even the soap and moisturizers they are using. So it is good to be aware of the signs and stop suffering once and for all!
For those who suffer from allergies, other options come to innovate and save women from these discomforts, including direct contact with menstrual flow, which for many is a horror show every month. The menstrual cup is one of the options that is at the top of the list of modern women. In addition to being practical, long-lasting, it is comfortable and eliminates contact with the flow once and for all, it is anti-allergic and does not cause any reaction.
Tampons are also highly sought after by women, but some are not entirely comfortable with them because they “swell” during use. Others, on the other hand, point out as the best discovery on the planet because they do not feel “dirty” during use. It should be noted that some women are also allergic to tampons and when they notice vaginal burning accompanied by itching, the gynecologist should be sought.
Symptoms of Absorbent Allergy
Allergy to an absorbent can occur in two ways: The first is due to an increase in temperature, which causes an increase in humidity in the genital area associated with the use of an absorbent that tends to “muffle” the region. The second is the direct contact of the region with the absorbent material, which mixed with the blood increases the allergy. It is worth remembering that in the production of absorbents, various materials are used, such as plastic, cotton, fragrances and materials for absorption, and any one of these components can cause an allergic reaction.
The most common symptoms of absorbent allergy are:
- Redness on the spot
- Intense itching
The skin of the region tends to become dry and present a certain “peeling” extending to the groin area and the entire region that comes in contact with the absorbent. When you notice these symptoms, the best thing to do is to discontinue use and change the model used . In most cases, changing the model or brand of the absorbent solves the problem. The models that contain perfumes and offer “super dry” action where they have plasticized mesh are the most likely to cause allergies. For allergic people the most recommended are those that have in their description, “soft cover”.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
