How to Use Teem soda and bitter kola for infection…how to use Teem soda and bitter kola to treat toilet infection in women. Does it work?
I recently bumped into an article on Facebook where the author was encouraging women to use bitter kola soaked in Teem soda or krest bitter lemon to wash “inside their bodies” (douche) so as treat all forms of toilet infection and other vaginal infections like candidiasis (yeast infection), bacterial vaginosis , syphilis, gonorrhoea, and even trichomoniasis.
See apart from the fact that bitter kola soaked in Teem soda has no medicinal value in treating gynaecological infections in women, I also want to let you know that there is nothing like “toilet infection” medically…
Health influencer @Aprokodoctor sheds more light on toilet infection…
There’s nothing like a “toilet infection”
It’s a misnomer for a group of conditions referred to as vaginitis, which result in itching, vaginal discharge.
Now there are 3 main causes
NONE of them are gotten from the toilet
Some will swear it started right after they used a public toilet but it usually starts long before that “toilet” is used and can be attributed to the vaginal practices of the owner.
Now this is how it goes down:
The vagina has bacteria living in it already, let’s call it good bacteria, known as lactobacilli, that’s what makes the vagina acidic, and acidic is good. At least for the vagina.
As long as these guys are in charge, you are in the clear at least.
Now there are other bacteria outside, on your skin, from your anus, and your hands. etc. That want to overpower the good bacteria.
It’s a War of benevolent and malevolent bacteria!!!!
Remember it’s all about balance.
Now some ladies erroneously think that douching makes you cleaner….
Some even buy some pearl nonsense
It doesn’t work!
Rather it kills off the good bacteria and allows the bad bacteria to grow everywhere.
The cookie begins to smell fishy.
Leave your private part alone! It knows how to do its job by itself.
It can clean itself, if you must clean, clean just the surface mildly with running water, avoid washing inside, avoid harsh soaps.
They just make things worse…
a new sexual partner,
use of intrauterine device
Or abuse of antibiotics makes things worse
They make it easier for you to get what I’m describing above…
Known as bacteria vaginosis.
It is NOT a sexually transmitted disease.
But it’s associated with sex. You dig?
Especially multiple sexual partners.
Lez go to Candidiasis, the itch is usually not ignored, plus the whitish milkish discharge.
This is caused by an overgrowth of a fungus known as Candida.
Especially when the area is damp for long
It can also be caused by abusing antibiotics,
Pregnancy, diabetes or even HIV.
Or the same practices I outlined above.
Leave the vagina alone!
The discharge from this may not always smell bad.
The last one Trichomoniasis is sexually transmitted… Yes, you don’t get it from the toilet.
Can also be spread by Oral sex, anal sex. The discharge is smelly too, bad.
Watery, and associated with itching
Gives off a discharge and foul smell.
How do you prevent all of these..
Avoid multiple sexual partners, always test your sexual partner and yourself for STIs
Wear dry cotton panties, g strings should not be worn for long periods
Stop abusing antibiotics
Sometimes the backsplash of WATER in the toilet bowl to you when you’re defecating or when cleaning can infect your urinary tract and might lead to a urinary tract infection. This is possible. Leads to painful urination.
If you have a vaginal discharge, do not just rush to the drug store and start abusing drugs, see a doctor to rule out other causes
I think I should point out here that poorly treated pelvic infections can affect fertility in the future, make sure you get PROPER TREATMENT.
🗣 Now back to the main topic of the day… Douching with Bitter kola + Teem soda does not cure infection in women rather it causes vaginitis.
