Alrighty, this is slightly embarrassing but after being to a few drs and just being told its "Dry Skin" I thought I would jump on here and ask you all a lovely question about my groin area
I have these dry, flaking, peeling but NOT itchy patches on either side of my groin.
It came up out of know where one day. Just on the groin/bikini area I have quite oily skin so this is not the norm for me to get dry skin anywhere.
I used hydrating cream on the area and it was pretty much gone, kept using it but AF rocked up 4 days ago an the dam dry skin/flaky patch thing is back!
I was trying to remember back to when the dryness first started and it was around my last period.
I use pads with wings.
I'm thinking this dryness is being caused by the wings on the pads, the patches are also right where the wings would sit/rub.
I have never had an issues with this before, I always have used pads with wings.. But I can't help but think its the pads due to the patches showing up when AF arrives.
