Four parts that women should pay attention to when swimming

1. Eyes

After swimming, the eyes will be red, astringent, and have a lot of secretions. This is the performance of conjunctivitis, most of which are caused by bacterial and viral infections. In June-August when the incidence of pink eye is high, special attention should be paid to wearing swimming goggles when swimming. If the water enters the eyes, do not rub it with your hands, and rinse it with pure water.

Before and after swimming, it is best to drop a few drops of anti-inflammatory eye drops. If you have eye discomfort such as soreness and itching after swimming, you can use chloramphenicol eye drops to prevent infection.

People with allergies can take the corresponding anti-allergic drugs before and after swimming, and wear protective equipment to prevent water from entering the nasal cavity. Choking water, do not blow your nose hard, otherwise the Eustachian tube will expand, and dirt will enter the middle ear through the Eustachian tube, causing otitis media.

3. Mouth

Even in a sanitized swimming pool, its bacteria may not be able to kill cleanly. Bacteria invade the respiratory tract and digestive tract through the mouth, thereby causing infection. Especially when the body's resistance is reduced, the oral mucosa has wounds or inflammation, it is more likely to be infected, gingival redness and even mouth ulcers will occur. Rinse mouth with water immediately after swimming.

If conditions permit, it can be disinfected with mouthwash. Washing immediately after swimming can remove bacteria that stay on the surface of the mouth in time and prevent it from developing deeper and causing infection. Before gargling, it is not advisable to drink water and eat.

4. Private parts

Swimming may cause gynecological diseases, because the swimming pool water is mostly alkaline, and the water contains a large number of transmissible bacteria, which can easily lead to female private parts infection. In addition, public facilities in swimming pools, such as steps, lockers, etc., are also potential sources of infection.

You should urinate immediately after swimming. You can use water and lotion to help improve the acid-base environment of the private parts. It is best to use a professional weak acid herbal private parts lotion to clean and inhibit bacteria. Simple water cleaning cannot completely wash away the attached bacteria. This may lead to serious consequences such as infection and inflammation of the private parts.
