I read an article today that has genuinely left me puzzled. To be more accurate, it was not an article per se, but the response to a woman who had written in for advice about dealing with body odour. This was published in the August 2011 edition of Genevieve, a popular Nigerian magazine.
In her response, the medical doctor recommends the use of a ‘mild’ solution of household bleach to rinse the underarms and pubic area two or three times a day after bathing!
I do not claim to have any medical training,most of the knowledge I have was gleaned from personal experience, novels, and the expert teams at the Seattle Grace and Holby City hospitals. Oh, and from watching ER(never did know what that hospital was called) too.
However, I do not think it is right to advise that household bleach be used in cleaning any part of the human body, whatever the reason.
But then again, I am not a doctor. What do I know?
Thanks for stopping by :).
p.s. Letters are still coming in from ‘Informed Viewer’…and I have no idea why my fonts are doing a Jackie Chan on me, but it’s late, and I still have to go eat some ice cream so please forgive me, this one time.
