this disorder. Reduced estrogen levels from menopause, normal monthly hor- mone fluctuations, stress, cancer thera- pies, allergy and cold medications, some antidepressants, oral contraceptives and douching could potentially cause this disruption in the normal chemical bal- ance of the vaginal tissue. The vaginal tissue also has a unique


pH ranging from 3.5 to 5 which can be disrupted by using soaps with soda or sodium laurel sulphates. For a person who already has sensitive skin in this area, extra care needs to be taken for hygiene to maintain a normal hydrolipidic film and inhibit the growth of harmful microorgan- isms, particularly yeast. This condition can be effectively


treated with vaginal lubricants and cleansers such as Lubrigyn to replenish moisture and alleviate the symptoms of vaginal dryness. Take special care to avoid mineral oils and petroleum based products which may interrupt this tis- sue’s delicate nature. See your doctor if symptoms persist.
