My pantiliners give me a rash!

I started to wear pantiliners just in case, and now I have a rash every time I put one on. Why does this happen?

A period-related mishap is a girl’s worst nightmare. But that doesn’t mean you should wear a pantiliner 24/7.

According to Dr. Jennifer Griffin of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, it’s not unusual for some pantiliners to irritate the skin. “Avoid using scented sanitary products—their fragrance can cause allergic reactions and irritate sensitive skin. On days you use pantiliners or pads, change them frequently enough so that they stay dry.”

And if you’re worried about leaks, track your cycles so you know when to expect your period.
